The Art of Religion is a vast and complex field that has inspired countless works of art throughout history. One of the most influential texts in the history of art is the Bible, but other religious texts have paradigm insights that have yet to be illustrated, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, Pistis Sophia, the Nag Hammadi, the Gospel of Peace, and Apocrypha. These texts all contain spiritual and philosophical insights that could shaped many aspects of art, and spiritual practices. Many of these ancient texts have vast amounts of information regarding the divine feminine, or as Christ calls her, Our Heavenly Mother.
Kingdom of Heaven
The Kingdom of Heaven painting puts the Mother in the center as a mediator-type between children and heaven. Elevating the role of motherhood as divine co-creator with the heavens. Loaded with lots of symbolism, but the main message hidden within the pajamas of the children, are the Disciples of Christ, symbolizing the mothers’ role to teach the children to be his disciples. The LDS children’s hymn "A Child's Prayer" helped to inspire this painting.
