The Baptism

Acrylic and thread on leatherette (32x22cm)

After a visit to Stirling Castle, I was inspired to make a series of contemporary paintings based on the Christian narratives of the renowned Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries.

“The Virgin and the Baptism” refer to the fifth tapestry in the series where the unicorn is drawn to the virgin’s purity. This refers to Mary receiving Christ in the womb. He has been caught there.
