Man of Nazareth – Painting by Anthony Sweat – Canvas Art
See the description of this painting from the artist, Anthony Sweat:
I was once conversing with a group of Muslim religious educators from Saudi Arabia when they visited a local LDS seminary. One of them pointed to perhaps our most oft-printed LDS image—the portrait of Christ in a red robe—and he asked me who that person in the portrait was. “Jesus,” I told them. They all broke out in spontaneous laughter. “You think that is what Jesus looks like? An American mountain man?” they said humorously. “What do you think he looks like?” I asked in return. “Us!” they said in unison. And perhaps they are right. But whether Jesus looks American or Swedish or Saudi Arabian or African American, what matters to an artist is the message that comes through to the audience receiving that image. I purposely painted this image of Jesus—with more olive-toned skin and darker hair than is typical—with the hope that you will receive the message that Jesus is the Savior of all nations and peoples, “black and white, bond and free, male and female” (2 Nephi 26:33).
