FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM
Homage to Matthias Grunewald, Isenheim Altarpiece
This work was conceived in Tahiti in 1992 and completed during Easter 1994.
On these Islands, the men frequently wear leis on their heads at times of celebration.
The vision I had was of Christ bursting from the cross from darkness into light, from sorrow to joy. Instead of a crown of thorns he wore a crown of flowers. The other side of the cross represents the presence of the Lord.
2.Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
