Is it obvious I am into Asian Christian art? This painting, “Christ Healing the Blind”, is from contemporary Japanese artist Sadao Watanabe.
It is explained as follows: “Christ gently places two fingers on the Blind Man’s eye in blessing, their faces closely aligned. White cloud-like forms emanate like thoughts to guide the healing, the large ‘cloud’ echoing Christ’s floating hand, as black ones appear to leave. The little dog, just touching his master’s gown, is alert to the importance of the event and introduces an informal and familiar note.”
