Christianity and the Sun

I think this image is interesting. We have the Pope in the center with the orb and keys to heaven in his left hand. In his right hand is his staff with three crosses on top to symbolize the other two men that were put to death at the same time as Jesus. In the right hand corner is a messenger. He appears to be blowing his horn, and about to write a message. On the left is the sun. The sun has a face, but not a happy look. I wonder what the message was to the Pope.


  1. Hmm, I wonder what the message was, too! Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog! I'm so glad you did, now I've found YOURS as well! I'm your newest follower!

  2. Hmmm, good question. When available, I enjoy reading the artist's notes and perspective to unlock mysteries like this one.

  3. Hi There Kimberly. This is a great post. I love symbolism and wish I had a better knowledge of many. Take the dollor bill for example. They're all around us. Great blogging. glad I came back today. Hope to see you soon. Keri (a.k.a. Sam)
