Palm Sunday

Zizi's PALM SUNDAY

PALM SUNDAY: THE KING CAME THROUGH

The King came through that day,
Without as crown, without a chariot;
Yet still they cried “Hosannah!”

The King came through that day,
To clean the Temple,
Heal the sick and lame;
And for this work the leaders
plotted death.

Zizi’s PALM SUNDAY:

I painted this to be viewed from the top right to the bottom left. It is how written Hebrew is read. The palm branch is up close and personal, it fills the entire space. Gold is sparkling, a symbol for riches and power…until you see the tiny spikes. The spiky thorns are the mocking crown, creating wounds in something as basic and pure as the living stem of a plant. The wounds seep suffering and agony at the very connection point the palm frond has with it’s tree.
