RE: Lucus

I hadn’t thought of it that way. Really great points! God isn’t ever depicted in this art. Perhaps this is because the people at this time would have easily mistaken a statue for God, rather than simply a picture of him. The other religions at this time would bow down to images as if their gods were actually present in the stone. Yet the God of the Jews and Christians set himself apart by not being limited to human description. Interesting!
