The Holy Wedding

Just finished. It is my re-interpretation of the famous painting “The Arnolfini Wedding Portrait” by Jan van Eyck. I used a lot of the same elements from the original and then changed quite a few as well. In my painting Giovanni Arnolfini has become Jesus (with blessing hand) and Mrs. Arnolfini has become Mary Magdalene…a very pregnant Mary Magdalene. The Latin translated is: Blessed are you among women; this is declared to all nations.
