    If I remember correctly of what I was taught in art class many years ago, is that black is the absence of all color so in that respect a black jesus is a perfect portrayal of the son of God who died for all mankind, no matter what color or creed. I agree that black is a color of mystery and sorrow but also beauty. I love this collection – thank you.
