Humanity's Hope

Kristen Cowell's avatar Kristen Cowell Vote Code: 64910

“Humanity’s Hope” symbolizes the sacrifice of Christ. In my painting a lion and a lamb are laying side by side. In scripture Christ is referred to the Lion of the tribe of Judah. The lion is reprehensive of strength and victory. Christ triumphed over the grave as a perfect and holy sacrifice in order for man to be reconciled due to his sinful nature. The lamb is representative of Christ becoming a holy offering. In biblical times it was Jewish custom to sacrifice a lamb for the forgiveness of sins.
