Senior Pre-Deaconess student Christianna Eckstein had her creation, “The Tree of Life,” accepted for the juried Christian Art Festival at Crossview Lutheran Church in Edina. The festival opened March 10 and runs through April 21. For more information, see http://www.crossview.net/ministries/caf.cfm.
“The Tree of Life” is an approximately 2 foot × 3 foot ceramic tile mural painted with acrylic paint and affixed to stained plywood. The initial idea for mural started with the concept of the Genesis 3:15 prophecy being fulfilled in the death of Jesus. If you look closely at the heel of Jesus, you can see see the head of the serpent attempting to deliver the finishing blow, only to be crushed himself. The other elements in the midst of the body of the serpent are meant to represent sin and death; two other enemies that are defeated by Christ’s work. The remaining images and Scriptural references in the mural arose from a desire to represent the work of the Triune God, focusing mostly on the purpose and results of the sacrificial death of Jesus.
