"For God So Loved the World" Sacred Heart of Jesus on Canvas
This rendition is a giclée (gzee' clay) ... a print transferred to canvas. It gives the high quality look of an original painting to any print. It is not under glass. The process is much more expensive than a typical print and so prices are correspondingly higher. Its gold frame is museum quality and is available in three sizes as shown.
The original of this picture was in a centuries-old church slated for destruction. A priest from Michigan saved it from certain ruin and brought it to the United States, where it became a family heirloom for a young Catholic doctor and his family. As far as can be determined, the original was painted in the 1700s by an unknown artist. The Latin inscription at the bottom reads, "Sic Deus Dilexit Mundum," ... translated, "For God So Loved the World" (John 3:16). This beautiful and haunting image, bears a strong resemblance to the Shroud of Turin.
It would make an excellent gift for anyone devoted to the Passion of Our Lord.
