The Sentinel

The Sentinel :: Photo illustration - Artwork © Michel Godts

In this artwork the combination of several visual symbols can convey various concepts: the defeat or destruction of Christianity; the end of someone’s faith; or, on the other end, the cross can be like a sentinel that protects any attack on Christianity.

  • The Celtic cross represents Christianity (or Christian faith).
  • The barbed wire can be seen as a barrier, an obstruction (or a protection depending on the point of view), but also a boundary, a limit or end.
  • The orange glow can be a sunset (an end) or a fire (destruction). As a sunset it expresses feelings of serenity, calm, peace, and hope for a new day.
