Out of Egypt

8×6″ oil paint on primed canvas sheet; use ‘comment’ below to inquire.

In Matthew’s gospel there is the narration of the journey to and from Egypt when the Child Jesus was in danger of being murdered by King Herod. Matthew links the event to to an old Testament statement and prophecy: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” (See Mt. 2:15) This image of Jesus is purposely ethnic and divided into darkness and light.
