The Disguise of Christ

Wire and oil painting - the desguise of Christ

This wire painting depicts a likeness of Christ using only his most iconic attire.  I wanted to portray that most of us can  recognize Christ from just these things and this begs  the question to be asked, would we know him if he didn’t have this disguise?   Would we recognize Christ if he wasn’t wearing his beard and tunic. Do we know him for what he wears or who he is?
