Signs and Symbols in Christian Art: With Illustrations from Paintings from the Renaissance (Galaxy Books)



First published in 1954 and having gone through several editions, this comprehensive book remains the authoritative source in the study of symbols in Christian art. This paperback edition includes all of the three hundred fifty illustrations from the original edition, as well as the complete and unabridged text, revealing . the symbolism inherent in representations of religious personages, the Earth and Sky, animals, birds, insects, and flowers. In addition to a discussion of objects treated symbolically in Christian art, George Ferguson explores Old Testament characters and events and their symbolic representation in art.

Ethiopian Christian Orthodox Paintings, Yeha, Ethiopia





In his Footprint East Africa Handbook, 7th Edition, Michael Hodd identifies the building housing these paintings as an "Iqa-bet, a two-story stone storage building, which contains religious artifacts." The building is next to the Church of Abba Afse, Yeha, Tigray Region, northern Ethiopia.

Center: St. George slaying the dragon. St. George is Ethiopia's patron saint.

Left: Virgin Mary and Jesus.

I do not have information about the dates or provenance of these pieces. However, to put it tactfully, they are simpler, stiffer and less expressive than their counterparts in the Laka Tana area, Gondar and Axum.

So, I will go out on a limb and suggest the paintings shown above are more recent than others I saw in Ethiopia.

To see the contrast between different versions of the same subject, take a look below, where you will find an 18th century painting of St. George and the dragon from Church of Narga Selassie, Dek Island, Lake Tana, Ethiopia.











This is Christian devotion... a lot of love here !




This is Christian devotion... a lot of love here !





In 1998 my wife and I made a round-the-world holiday. I didn't want to do the usual stops through southern Europe, so we concentrated mostly on Northern and Eastern Europe.

My contact and friend, Rasa, in Lithuania had sent me a post card of the Hill of Crosses a few years prior to this trip and I knew at that moment I would have to make the trek there.

When we got there it was very cold and rianing. The crosses were clanking in the wind and there was definately a strong spiritual presence in this holy place. I took around 70 snaps, of which this is one of them.

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful a place this is. There were milllions of crosses from 2 cm high to two stories high. The craftsmanship in the carved crosses blew my away... one must make the trip there to even begin to get a feel of whatI am talking about. My photos and the weather that day do not do the place and experience justice.
