Aslan Paintings found in my house!

Postby Pepper » Apr 15, 2011 11:33 am

OK, didn't know exactly where to post this, under merchandise or "Narnia and Christianity" so here goes. edit: just realized this is a sub forum of "movie discussion" and maybe a mod wants to move it.

I've recently realized a Narnian connection in the art hanging on my wall. These five prints are paintings by William Hallmark. Four of them depict the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and the fifth is a Noah's Ark image. We have had these hanging on the wall for several years, but for some strange reason my mind never realized the connection until recently. Sorry for the sloppy photography. I did a search and was really surprised nobody here has ever said anything about this gifted artist.

Here are the other three. I am obviously a very bad photographer.

This is a gorgeous collection of art, Pepper! :-o Most lovely! I very much like the ones of 'Aslan' with the keys and that of the one with the lamb! It's especially beautiful that in several of the paintings, there is a dove hovering over the lion's head. I also find the one of 'Aslan' in Keys of Death and Hell very powerful...the colouring and expression of the lion are very well portrayed. All of these paintings truly do relate to Narnia and I'm happy that you posted them here. I really enjoyed looking at them! :)

p.s. I disagree with you on one thing...you are not a bad photographer! If fact for where they are hanging I think you did a wonderful job with them! :p :p

Wow.. Those paintings are so beautiful! My mother would love some of those hanging on our wall.. I'm sure they'd suit me, too, considering I'm a Leo.. ^_^
