A Surreal Wedding Feast


Greetings!


This is a somewhat surreal image of Christ with an ethereal Blessed Virgin Mary at the wedding feast of Cana. Christ is clothed in a flaming, feathered cloak next to the water jug. He holds a fish in his hands, the sign of the "fisher of men". The water jug is filled and awaiting His first miracle. Threatening storm clouds build behind Christ, while St. Mary prays for the coming of God's Kingdom.

I like the anticipation in this one.

God does not react. He is controller of past, present, future. Even the present absence that awaits the manifestation of His miracle seems to be brought under reign and expanded, opened up to prime receiving capacity.

And yet still He waits.
