Thinking About Christ
[ bio ]
Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum
Stretched and framed.
On left, Jesus Christ bears cross on left shoulder as he passes behind a Japanese American man who bends under the weight of a block of dark images of camp, a watchtower and a mess hall, on right. Christ is in white-blue with a halo. The other man is in white short sleeves. In the foreground, a stalk of wheat apears in lower left corner, while a translucent open book floats between Christ and the man in the center. In the background, three white crosses stand on a hill, visible through Christ's cross.
