24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James Bennett, 2019

  • There is a very realistically painted golden cup in the center of the image. It is filled to the brim with a red liquid.
  • Below the cup is a loaf of bread broken in half.
  • A ghostly silhouette stands behind. It is covered in what at first appears to be nothing more than squiggly lines. On further inspection, the lines could appear to be a mass of figures crowded together.
  • These images are contained within an elliptical, almond shape which was used extensively in early Christian art. It is called a mandorla.
  • The background behind the mandorla is solid black.
  • At the four corners are symbols of the ancient elements: earth, air, fire, and water.
