The Sacred Heart of Jesus - pyrography by Theophilia The Sacred Heart of Jesus - pyrography by Theophilia
The Sacred and Merciful Heart of Jesus
October 21st, 2013
Pyrography


"Behold this Heart which has loved man so much, that has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming itself in order to testify it's love!" - Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Happy Feast of Saints Simon and Jude everyone! Here's a wood-burning piece I've been meaning to upload for a while. I started working on this a good long time ago (back in August, to be more precise), and I only finished it last week. The picture is based off of one of my favorite depictions of Jesus: The Sacred Heart of Jesus by Joseph Fanelli. I wasn't happy with how it came out at first, but I'm a little happier about it now. I am proud of the border though. :D

The Spanish sculptor Mariano Benlliure y Gil (1864-1949) was a master of religious sculpture. He decorated a tomb with a bronze image of the Sacred Heart which you should look up because it's very elegant and impressive.

Wow, he does have some pretty cool sculptures! I couldn't find the one you were talking about though, alas. :hmm:

Please keep looking, as it is one of his best. I saw it in a monograph of his work published just before he died.:D (Big Grin)

Thank you! :aww:

Hmmm...I can't quite remember, to be honest. :XD: But the second one I did of this (theophilia.deviantart.com/art/… only took 7...so it may have taken a little longer, maybe 8-9 hours to do, since I was still figuring out the medium (still am, but I have a couple more projects under my belt now). :nod:
