The Open Gate by John Marshall - Unframed Christian Art

".....small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life...." Matthew 7:14

Unframed Open Edition Lithograph

Measures 25" x 32.75" (including 2" borders)

John uses the open gate and the shadow being cast by the mounted cross to help convey the deeper redemptive story being told in the shadows...

* The Morning Glories and leaf laden branches form the shadows that represent Christ's sacrificed body.

* The fallen rose petals poignantly depict Christ's shed blood.

* The fence post's cast shadow represents the centurion's spear.

ARTIST NOTE: At present, the gate to heaven is open and accessible to all who will sincerely call upon the name of the Lord. As is stated in Proverbs 4:18, "The path of the righteous (those made right through Christ's atonement) is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day."
