In this awesome print from a vintage holy card, we have a reminder that while devils surround us, the One who is in us is more powerful than all of them! I love the intense drama of this moment! Satan has tried to tempt Jesus and has failed! Christ will now go on with his mission and redeem the world! The Lord has triumphed!

This episode happened after Jesus's forty days in the desert, on which Lent is modeled. The cloud is pink because it is the dawn of a new day. Clouds represent God's glory and power ("This is my beloved son..."). You can see the movement of the cloud is from right to left, i.e., progressing against satan. We think the city in the lower left might be Jerusalem with the old temple. This is a turn-of-the century card, maybe as late as the teens judging by the paper it is printed on. We just love this one. Let us say "awesome" again!

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.
