Two Sisters (diptych) by James Christensen
They are sisters from the same family, whose lives have gone in different directions. The sister on the left, richly attired in colorful extravagant robes, is wealthy, while the sister on the right wears plainer fare.
And yet they both have gifts to offer the world based upon those that they possess: the richer woman is replete with charity, her poorer sister is rich with faith and hope.
Rich in symbolism, these two paintings make a warm and wise statement: regardless of our specific circumstances, we all have a worthy contribution to make to our world!
