The Risen Christ appearing to the Eleven ... a study for the Jewish Jesus Exhibit




Left: The risen Christ appearing to the Eleven (Luke 24,36-49) from Duccio's Maestà. Christ has a plain halo; the Apostles only have them where they will not seriously interfere with the composition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_(religious_iconography)

Right: Yeshua bar Yosef appears to the eleven Talmidim  for the Jewish Jesus Exhibit in New York. Halos are kippahs (yarmulke), head coverings, and appear on all 12.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kippah
