Angelus in the City- Art Print

$10

“I was inspired to make this image by the Russian word Poustinia, or desert in English.  It is a small cabin or room away from everything, where one goes to pray, fast, and simply “be” with God.  Originally the idea of “Poustinia” was restricted to the actual physical cabins or rooms for which they were named, but with the writing of author Catherine Doherty came the concept of Poustinia as a place of encounter within one’s self where you are alone with God.  That place will look different for everyone, but for me, it is somewhere beautiful where I can go fishing with Jesus.  In my Poustinia, I don’t have to pretend to be anyone else and I don’t have to please anyone else.  Instead I can just be myself and be with Jesus as he loves me just the way I am.

Description

At first glance, you may recognize this print as The Angelus, an oil painting by French painter Jean-François Millet. However, upon closer inspection, you’ll notice a familiar skyline in the background: none other than that of our beloved town, Nashville. This update on a classical piece inspires reflection on the “ever-ancient, ever-new” aspect of beauty and it’s enduring impact on culture throughout the ages. This is an ideal image to hang in a central place within your home: a quiet reminder to stop, give thanks, and create a scared space whether you’re in the midst of a busy work-day or simply resting at home.
