Cleansing the Temple
24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James
This is a semi-abstract
painting which is composed of images
the story of Jesus upsetting
the tables of the money-changers who were
in the temple courtyard..
There are images of doves,
coins, a chalice, and a menorah -- all
in worship in the temple.
The dark brown slats represent
of broken tables.
There are flowing, wavy strands that
begin in the upper right corner and cross
the painting diagonally. They represent the whip that
Jesus is said to have used.
The edge of the painted image appears
to have a deckle edge like handmade paper.
