The Holy Spirit, like the Father, is completely spirit; without a body – unlike Jesus. However, from the Gospels we get the image of the Spirit as a dove as he descends upon Jesus at his Baptism.
This image of the Spirit is from the stained glass window that adorns the apse of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. Images of this window make it look rather small, but the dove itself is over six feet wide from wing tip to wing tip. Also, it’s not glass, but orange alabaster which is how the pieces can be so large without breaking.
This little painting serves as a reminder not only of the Holy Spirit himself, but of St. Peter’s Basilica and the the Pope as the head of the Catholic Church. Jesus promised that his Spirit would always reside in the Church from the moment of Pentecost to his second coming.
Beautiful 8″x10″, 5″x7″, 4″x6″, or mini 2.5″x3″ Giclée print. The quality of the print is so high that the brush strokes are clearly visible from the original oil painting.
1/2″ border to provide some visual transition between the print and the frame, and so if you decide to get a custom frame, the framers don’t have to cover any of the art as they assemble it together.
Printed on high quality 100% cotton paper on a 10-ink pigment based inkjet printer, this print is of archival quality and as such will not fade or deteriorate even 100 years later.
Shipped in a rigid cardboard mailer with cardboard backing. Sealed in a plastic sleeve.
