I have chosen to depict various symbols in the Bible to reflect God’s Promises throughout the Bible. These symbols are the: rainbow; ark; starry night; shofar; olive leaves; lion; and His Word.
I like the story of Noah’s Ark and I like to draw rainbow and animals. Rainbow is beautiful. The rainbow in the story of Noah’s Ark is a sign of God’s everlasting covenant to Noah and all mankind – that He will never destroy the earth with a flood again. God is a covenant-keeping God. There are many promises in the Bible. Whenever I see a rainbow, I am reminded and reassured that God will keep His Word (promises) because He loves us, and gives us hope that will not disappoint.
Inspired by Isa. 42:3 and Matt. 12:16-21, which illustrate the Hope and Promise given by God to people who look for Him and ask for help, I looked for reeds in the Singapore Botanic Gardens and found them by the lake. The reeds were next to dry land, which led to the idea of combining the wick and reeds for this artwork.
