The Holy Family

This image depicts the Holy Family in an unusual way. This shows the family members engaged in work. Joseph's sleeves are rolled up, he holds a hammer and a chisel and Mary spins thread.

From the top we see God, depicted as sitting on a cloud. His facial features are not well defined and above his head is painted an equilateral triangle. This triangle is a mark of Marion Rzeznik's painting style.

Two Cherubim angels, traditionally depicted as child like, descend from heaven, surrounded by clouds to bring Christ his crown. The presence of pink roses suggests happiness.

Again there is the presence of the fern to the left. Jesus plays with a cross, a foreshadow of his future. In the background there is a pillar, again the circular pillar and squared base representing the meeting of heaven and earth.
