In this pair of paintings, a pair of footprints appear to represent He who brought the good news to humanity. Jesus walked among us fully human and fully divine. Being human, His sandals left an imprint in the grass and being divine, He walked on water and might have even left a footprint in it, though not possible except for God.
In Fully Human, I show a butterfly to represent the Resurrection, and in Fully Divine, I painted three fish as a reminder of the Trinity. Jesus is true God and true man — not half God and half man but 100% of each. He is the perfect human being who we are all modeled after. He was completely divine even as an infant.
This mystery of the two natures coexisting in the single person of Jesus is known in theology as the doctrine of the Hypostatic Union. It is important because we cannot be in right relationship with Jesus without being conscious of His two distinct and perfect natures.
