Christ as Salvator Mundi

Hans Memling, c. 1490


Christ as Salvator Mundi" comes from the Gothic tradition, when artists produced images that mirrored the real world and could be touched and understood in the natural sense. That tradition led to our love of sight and touch, and the acceptance of a Jesus of physical beauty and grace.
