article description
Artist Statement: The book that I chose to use was labeled Christ and the apostles. I picked this book because of the age and the condition that it was in. I put the nails through the book to represent Christ's crucifixion and how he died for all of our sins. The nails represent the nails that were put through Christ's hands while he was on the cross. The mirrors are so that the viewers can seem themselves in the book, which represents how Christ died for each and everyone of us. On the front of the book are ribbons that I used to portray the celebration of his resurrection.
