Painting and Sketches/Image- St Issa (Jesus) preaching in Persia (sketch)Previous | Gallery Home | Next
St Issa traveled rapidly back through India on his way back to Israel. While passing into western adjacent countries he preached to the various peoples and tribes there. Wherever he went he caused a stir, his words a revival of faith and ultimately inciting the destruction of their stone, wood, and metallic idol statues.
This is one conceptual sketch for a later painting designed at capturing
part of this trip. The idea is drawn to explore composition of the main
elements-Jesus/Issa preaching, angry mob destroying idols, and the upset
priests. Further sketches and research is needed to make the final color
sketch for the future painting.
