The Four Evangelists by Holley Bakich

In 2006, I was lucky enough to travel to Europe. There, I saw many cathedrals and many depictions of the four Biblical evangelists shown as their symbolic animals: Matthew (human form), Mark (eagle form), Luke (bull form), and John (lion form). I’ve been interested in equating people with animals and their symbolism. These pieces depict that. On the box, I listed the saint’s day, the constellation with which each evangelist is associated, and a painting of the human form of each.
