The spiritual battle



Artist Statement

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition, a polyptych is “an arrangement of four or more panels (as of a painting) usually hinged and folding together.” Originally, a polyptych was a religious carving or painting on an altar and had four or more hinged panels telling a story.
That story is how we fight against evil entities as competitors that hinder our most abundant, healthiest, and happiest lives. God wants us to appropriate that promises on daily bases as is written. In this art, I gave a perspective on the main steps of being the greatest fighters to save our lives, corresponding with God's words and applying them in your life.
Polyptychs were most commonly created by early Renaissance painters, most of whom designed their works to be altarpieces in churches and cathedrals.

How it fits into contest

The Polyptych series is based on four sections that represent:

The first section is based on Ephesians 6:12 - For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The second section is based on Ephesians 6:14 - Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.

The third section is based on Ephesians 6:15 - 16. 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

The fourth section is based on Ephesians 6: 17 - And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Finally, joining all sections tells the journey of the spiritual battle to be reborn as new creatures, ready to fight and protect our families, minds, and hearts.
