Sword of the Spirit


Digital Art

Artist Statement

This is a visual representation of the Sword of the Spirit described in Ephesians 6. I created this shot by taking two pictures of myself, and then one picture of a city scene for the background. The background in this case was Winston Salem, North Carolina. The first picture of me was holding a Bible, and the second picture of me was holding a sword in the attack position. I used photoshop to draw the lights and glows coming directly from the pages of the Bible and forming the shape of a man in attack mode.

How it fits into contest

This image was directly inspired from Ephesians 6 with regards to the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
