2. John Woodhouse - Syrian Piéta (£150-250)

Oil on canvas 31 x 23 (12¼ x 9) wide bar.

Signed on the top edge Syrian Pieta treble clef

John Woodhouse June 2019.

This picture is inspired by a statue in a French cemetery and is

meant to convey the horror of carrying a tiny baby across the sea

only for the child to die. I cannot imagine anything worse. Mary

was told by Simeon that a sword would pierce her soul but she had

faith. Even in our deepest grief the Lord is with us to support and

comfort us. We have hope that there is life and death is conquered.
