“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, …” James 1:17 (NIV)
This image can have so many interpretations. I would have liked to show piled jewels all around the giant pearl so that the viewer could see the overflowing of jewels falling from the hand of God to his people. The jewels could be symbolic of his mercies new every day, his love, blessings or could be actual precious jewels.
The original painting has two actual crystals and a “jewel” glued onto the canvas.
