The Boy Christ in
24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James
The boy Jesus, twelve years old, is
depicted inside an ancient labyrinth.
The labyrinth is a geometric
design with an aged patina. It symbolizes the
centuries-old, ancient Jewish religion, which in
many ways had grown cold and artificial because
of its legalistic focus on obeying laws.
The silhouette of the boy is bright
and radiant. It symbolizes God as a living
human. He is warm and expressive.
The writing at the top is Greek
and states that the teachers were amazed at his
questions and answers.
