I was commissioned to make an image of the Jesus Christ (Pantocrator) in the style of Japanese wood-block prints as a companion piece of the Japanese Madonna of Tender Mercy
that I had previously done. The pose is based off of the Sinai Christ Pantocrator
but in traditional Japanese-style clothing. The Japanese katakana characters in the scrolls read イエス・キリスト which means "Jesus Christ."
