The kiss of betrayal




Here's my Artwork for 'Good Friday' 2017.

Title: The kiss of betrayal.

Theme: The picture depicts the 'night of betrayal'- Jesus Christ, the 'Lamb of God' betrayed by Judas Iscariot.

Description:
1. The background- the 'dark night' is woven with treachery* and Passion. The purple colors of the sky and the thorns denotes the night of suffering and agony. The night is overshadowing Jesus. The night of agony is filled with bright crosses- instead of stars- symbolizing suffering leading to Glory.

2. The heart with a cross denotes Jesus Christ. The heart of Christ is shown in pure white- symbolic of Purity- unblemished Lamb. The heart of Christ, which is full of Love is melting- symbolic of Christ willingly and Lovingly sacrificing Himself for our salvation. Thorns on the heart- symbolic of agony of Jesus.

3. The lips of Judas Iscariot are shown in two colors- the outer smooth edge in white and the inner jagged edge in black- symbolic of impostor. He appeared to be the Apostle of Christ (belonging to the Light). On the contrary, he belonged to the darkness. The inner black lips merge into the night- symbolic of Judas belonging to the darkness. Judas, the betrayer is one with the 'night of betrayal' to betray the innocent 'Lamb of God'.
The betraying lips of Judas and the 'dark night' appear to bite into the innocence of Jesus.
The blood on the lips of Judas is symbolic of treachery.

* Treachery of Judas and treacherous plans of Sanhedrin.

Blessed be God !!!  Blessed be God !!!   Blessed be God !!!
