I was looking at a book of ancient Ethiopian sacred art the other day. Looking at all the beautiful paintings of Black angels and nativity scenes and other Biblical moments got me to thinking about the notion of Black representations of God. I am always interested in depictions of figures from the major religious traditions of the world that challenge and/or expand U.S. and European depctions of divinity and the sacred. And so I decided to add my own work to the mix. Here is my drawing of a Black God, watching over the greatest city on the planet.
