Aboriginal Art: Jesus and Adam

Aboriginal art jesus and adam

This example of Aboriginal Christian art is something I ripped out of a magazine eight or more years ago, or thereabouts, only to gather dust in my old art folders for years, largely forgotten. I suspect it may be the first piece of Aboriginal Christian art I ever collected.

Unfortunately, as it was way before I ever heard of blogging, I lacked the foresight to write down the artist details. I think it is however reasonably easy to interpret. It features Jesus and Adam under the Trinity. Those who live under Adam are in disharmony and darkness, facing different directions. Those who live under Jesus, the second Adam, are in harmonyand light. This harmony is entered through the waters of baptism. I hope you find it interesting.
