Original Oil Painting on Belgian Linen

In this painting one of the conclusive pieces of the series, the lambs, or followers, blinded and hypnotized by their faith into senseless submission and sometimes slaughter finally come home to be cleansed by the 11.  Returning them to new life as babies, innocent and not stained with the imposition of another's power game.    The pillars are strong, the saint takes the baby on his shoulders to show him the capacity of himself and his ability to do good for himself and therefore all.
