A famous icon by the name of George Bernard Shaw once said, “You see a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.”
Throughout history, art has woven ingeniously with religion. The Birth of Venus, The Last Supper, The Last Judgement, are a few of the innumerable examples of primeval paintings based on the fundamental religious beliefs of their respective eras. The paintings glorify the gods worshipped by the various ancient civilizations that ever flourished on this earth.
Civilizations such as the Greeks, Romans, and Mayans, placed an unshakeable faith in their respective gods and preserved these beliefs in the form of sacred art. This sacred art of painting of the deities was intended to idolize, glorify, suggest and narrate the story of their faith, belief and religion. These paintings kept religious traditions and rituals alive and made it easier for individuals to visualize a notion or event that is otherwise quite complex to understand and appreciate by mere words.
Therefore, as religion still continues to form an indestructible pillar of our social as well as spiritual beliefs, the portrayal of the devout events that are crucial to the religion, as well as of the gods, should always be encouraged in our paintings and artistry.
“Art and religion, are then, two roads by which men escape from circumstance to ecstasy.”
