Description of Throne

Thrones are befitting the honor due an exalted King, majestic and glorious (see Rev. 4). This image is a close-up view, only a hint of the decoration and adornment appropriate for the throne of Christ, sovereign Lord over all creation. Quatrefoils, as seen in the middle of the print, have been used in architectural tracery features since medieval times. They depict the four gospels which tell the story of Jesus' life and ministry. In all times and in all places may honor and glory be given to him!

The image is an original linoleum block print resulting from a printmaking process in which an image is drawn on a block of wood covered with a thin layer of linoleum, and then hand-carved to expose areas that will be white. Ink is rolled onto the block, covering the surface not cut away. Paper made from the mulberry tree is laid on top and hand rubbed with a Japanese barren or wooden spoon. In transferring the ink to the paper the resulting image is a reflection of the design placed on the block. It first appeared in the book Visuals for Worship (Faith Alive Christian Resources, 2006) which is no longer in print.

When using the image please include the following acknowledgment: “Linoleum block print by Elizabeth Steele Halstead."
