Description
In an opulent classical style, Jesus Christ is depicted enthroned in glory. The throne on which He sits is carved in a manner evocative of ancient Rome, while His rich brocaded robes resemble those of a Byzantine Emperor or a Russian Czar. His features are rendered in the traditional Byzantine manner, kindly and benevolent. The artist has created an impressive vision of spiritual glory manifested in terms of earthly splendor. This is a triumphant image of Jesus as the "King of the World", a celebration of enduring faith and hope. - (PF.5177)
