South African Black Jesus Painting Series

Once again, the approach of National Science Week means I’m going light on the blogging. Here’s another old post from my backup stash…

Here are a series of religious paintings from a church in Kwa-Ndebele. I found these painting facinating and striking, so I wanted to share them with the world. I’m  fascinated by how religion is reinterpreted through different cultural lenses–it makes religion seem friendlier.

Apologies for the questionable quality of some of the photos.
