I believe the art pieces I am submitting are reflections
of the reality of the 'Love Astounding' of God in the
Incarnation of Jesus Christ. God came to be with us, Emmanuel,
in a particular time and place. God learned what it was
to be human in a particular time and place, the First
Century Mediterranean world during the height of the Roman
Empire. My images are of Romans who lived during this
period of history and of their Gods.
These are the people who were first evangelized to by
the apostles. They are the Gentiles who grew the first churches. They are the first
people to respond to the "Love Astounding" of God. The result: a
Way that caught the fire of the Holy Spirit
and spread like none other.
These are hand cut marble mosaics made in the ancient
Roman style typically found in homes and public venues
through out the early Christian world.
