Calvary by Octavio Ocampo - Unframed Christian ArtCalvary is a painting of hope. Christ's face is heavy with sorrow as he takes on the sins of the world and makes his incredible sacrifice on the cross. Through the face of Jesus suffering, we can see the crucifixion which is the sacrifice Christ made for all humanity. The middle left side of the painting depicts the sacrifices made by Christian martyrs.
The scriptures tell us that it was Christ's sacrifice that opened the gates of hell so that the souls there (lower left) could ascend to heaven with the help of God's angels (middle right).
The ravens on the upper left represent the cares, sorrows, and sins of this world. But through the sacrifice and with the help of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost (three eyes in upper center); those ravens are muted and made bearable (below the third eye). The right most eye represents the Holy Ghost, it is encircled with doves symbolizing its peace and love. Thus through the sacrifice and the Trinity, humanity is freed from the bondage of care, strife and sin.
The artist appears in the work (lower right), representing St.John as well as all of humanity. This shows the benefits from the forgiveness bought by Christ's sacrifice and glories in the hope that this brings.
The cloth robe worn by the artist on the lower right is a representation of the cloth pressed to Christ's face by Veronica on which his countenance was indelibly imprinted. The cloth pictured shows Veronica's face crying in anguish for the pain that Christ had to endure on the cross.
The "Calvary" is a vision of the time and place where all of humanity and hope for salvation and a life in God's grace was born. We should look upon it as an eternal reminder of God's love for the world and everyone in it. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
