Our Church's Paintings: Part 2 - Other Paintings
A Large Copy of the famous painting of Jesus Christ by artist Warner Sallman hangs in our conference room.
A painting of Mary holding the Baby Jesus also hangs in our conference room. The artist is unnknown, but is probably African because Mary is portrayed as an African woman.
A third painting in our conference room shows a village in the Middle East during Biblical times. The artist is unknown. This might be a picture of Mary and Joseph arriving in Bethlehem, but more research is necessary to know for sure.
A medium size copy of the famous fresco painting of the Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci hangs in our church office. The original painting is a fresco painted between 1494 and 1498 which still hangs in its original place in the dining room of the former convent of Santa Maria delle Grazia in Milan, Italy, and was restored in recent decades to its former glory. Our copy was done with Paint By Numbers by a CLC member.
This abstract watercolor by an unknown artist hangs in Pastor’s office. It shows Jesus as the bread and wine and the Holy Spirit represented by a dove. Sheet music for the hymn “Let Us Break Bread Together” is also in the painting, and may be the painting’s title. The Red might symbolize the Blood of Christ.
