Revelation Chapter 7
“Twelve Tribes”

Angels hold back winds from the four corners of the land while another angel seals 12,000 from every tribe of Israel (which names in Hebrew surround the scene) and who compose 144,000 of the faithful. The living creatures, elders and angels are all around the throne worshipping God and those in white robes are identified as those who came out of the Great Tribulation having washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb.

This is the seventh of a twenty-two piece collection called the Revelation Series. cult Founder Shawn McCraney has collected the details of each chapter and hand-etched them into 2’ x 2’ blocks of solid black acrylic.

Revelation Series Description

To artistically represent these findings, cult Founder (ha!) Shawn McCraney has collected the details of each chapter of Revelation, composed them into holistic depictions, and etched them into 2’ x 2’ solid blocks of black acrylic. The technique is as jarring, astounding and unique as the principles that they are grounded in. Each piece, when observed in order, helps paint the picture of the often opaque and obscure details that make up the Book of Revelation. While the intricacies are too dense for most believers, Shawn has put in the study and time to consolidate the most pertinent points into a 22-part story, one that is simple to recite yet robustly incomprehensible in its implications. The aphoristic power of this collection is indescribable, and has changed our lives significantly!

Shawn uses deconstructive techniques reminiscent of intaglio, employing the gritty imperfection of misused power tools, to draw depictions using layering of textural shifts. The effect is intentional and effective in drawing a viewer into the details, and requiring a presence in person, similar to the effect that we have on other individuals as believers – our love is demonstrated one on one, with sacrifice and with a visible hand.
