Christ Through Glass

 

 

The Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec.

This piece was seen in this popular national museum which

explores Canada's some 20,000 years of human history.

I was so intrigued with this creation of Jesus Christ.

Today is Good Friday for Christians the world over.

I find this a little disturbing, though I can appreciate it for what it is! You did well not to get glare off the glass!
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... I was quite intrigued by the image.
This really has a First Nation's feel to it, Jacquelyn. Like Native American art, I am very intrigued by it. We're both kinda on the same page today.
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... Indeed Ginnie >> though Native Canadian (Canadian Aboriginal) art I believe. I'm sorry now that I didn't have time to take pix and also write the info down during my short time at the museum. I was with other people that had different interests > and I needed to keep up > as there was so much to see. I should have taken a photo of the info but didn't think of that till after.

Stark stuff Jacquelyn - I like it
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... Me too. I was totally fascinated with the image.
is it painted or a drawing
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... It was two years ago I saw it for but a moment so I'm not sure.
Quite original and intriguing Jacquelyn!
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... I'm totally with you on that.
A most unusual find but it still comes with the pain and anguish that can be seen in Philine's offering today.
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... There is definitely pain expressed in part of this image or sure.

This is one of those that I would have liked to hear or read the artist's own explanation. Especially about the left and right halves of the face. A lot of thoughts I can think about it, but probably not correct. A blessed good Friday to you and yours.
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... Thank-you Louis. Our Good Friday this year included a baby shower for my oldest son's wife and an Easter celebration a couple hours away all in one swoop.
... ... I captured this image two years ago and have been trying recently to find out more about it > but I think I may have to email the Museum for more info to share.
There is no mistaking this as anything but Native Canadian art, Jacquelyn. Well captured!
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... Thank-you Beverly. Isn't it an amazing piece? I'm often captivated my Canadian Aboriginal Art.
really liking the symbolism
Jacquelyn Ann: ... ... I love how Jesus is seen here through a Canadian Aboriginal artist's eyes and talent. I'm hoping to find out more about this piece. I'll keep searching for the info.
