…for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters.
ow are souls born? We sometimes say that before we were born we were ‘just a twinkle of our parent’s eye’. Here Christ carries the little newborn twinkling souls earthward trailing a cloud of stardust. Like Michelangelo’s famous fresco ‘The Creation of Adam’, God protects us beneath his arm.
This is an original handmade etching. It was created at the Lower East Side Printshop. The plate was created by etching the lines into a copper plate. The plate was then soaked in an acid bath, inked by hand, sprinkled with French chalk, and run through a printing press to create a this one of a kind image. Because of the unique application of chalk to each image, this is a 'monoprint'.
