Jesus Christ of Nazareth

Ok, first of all, I just want to preface this by saying I am not uploading this to offend anyone's religious beliefs!


I just like to keep an open mind and realize that there are many, many, MANY other viewpoints and belief systems out there beside my own and I like to give everything a chance!


So, as you may have guessed, this is another one from the Glenbow Museum, in the Where Symbols Meet: A Celebration of West African Art & Achievements wing.


This vibrant and vividly coloured painting (I do not know the name of the painter, maybe someone can help me out?) shows what many believe Jesus truly looked like.


I am sure all the symbols and motifs on his headband, necklace, bracelets, and robes all have very significant meanings, so, once again, if anyone can help me with some explanations, it would be very kind of you indeed!
