Universe in the Hands of God

by fariddelaossa
This painting was inspired by Mark Wallace’s article “The Wounded Spirit as the Basis for Hope in an Age of Radical Ecology”, and by John Chryssavgis’ article “The World and Creation: An Orthodox Perspective on Ecology and Pneumatology” which appear in a book titled “Christianity and Ecology” edited by Dieter T. Hessel and Rosemary Radford Ruether.

I have tried to capture the essence of the text which symbolically sees the Earth is the Body of the Spirit. For this reason, in our age the color GREEN is perhaps most fittingly the representative color of the Holy Spirit. Here, I used the Mandala format (a circle) to contain all the universe and I placed a depiction of a feminine and a masculine hand holding this circle signifying how God is intimately connected with the Universe. Outside this scene I placed a green color to signify the transcendence of the Holy Spirit in Nature.
