HAND COLORED ST. LAZARUS SAVES THE WORLD
Thomas van der Krogt prays to St. Lazarus for salvation to the Corna Virus Crisis.
It's been about a week but finally finished this woodcut of Saint Lazarus (Babaluaye). In this image the Saint, patron of the sick and dying, holds up the world, blessing it. My process for this print was to pray a novena before I started carving and try to maintain utmost concentration. This piece is effectively a talisman. I have hand colored a few to offer a deepened version of my plea and vision.
