One of the Chinese words for garden is yuan. The image has amazing detail in it, it is made from the images, dust, breath, enclosure, person and person. This is very interesting to me because of the biblical significance here. Genesis 2:7 & 8 tell us that God made man from dust, breathed life into him and put him in a garden enclosure! The way that the person and other image for person are placed with in the image for garden, also is interesting. One person is coming from the right side of the other person. So the way the Chinese image is written is just like the story that the Bible tells us. Woman came from mans side. WOW, this gives me the chills! God is in the ancient Chinese characters, and now in my paintings. This painting has the garden image in it, as a reminder to us that we are complete when we are in the garden with our creator. Keeping with the 6:26 ransomed theme, God created you exactly how He wants you, and you are beautiful in His image!
