Jesus and the Beloved Disciple wear the exquisite weaving of the Aymara Indians, descendents of the Incas who continue to inhabit the Andean Regions of Chile, Peru and Bolivia.
Jesus wears a customary scarf wrapped around his neck, suggesting the sacred stole worn by the officiating priest. John, the Beloved Disciple, rests his head on the shoulder of Jesus who breaks bread as a sign of his sacrificial love.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America’s indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the reconciliation of the spiritual vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land.
