The Lion of Judah (Revelations 5:5) by J.A.Stratemeyer

The Lion of Judah
(Revelations 5:5)
as after C.S.Lewis
Art Journal:
This is my very first attempt at use of acrylic based paint. It is not connected in any way with the poem below which is a poem that I posted on FaithWriters.com back in 2005.
This painting is my interpretation of Aslan as the Lion of Judah.
Aslan is a fictional charachter
created by C.S.Lewis in his
"Chronicles of Narnia" stories.
I have read that Aslan is the Turkish word for lion.

I to have read the majority of C. S. Lewis books when I was younger. Your painting does resemble Aslan. Where's the rest of the gang?

Yeshua is the Lion of Judah, and Aslan is an allegorical figure of the King.
Narnia could represent the world or it could represent the Promised Land, Israel. The 4 children could represent 'Christians' and the Narnians are the Jewish people.

The Tulmarines could represent the Sonds of Ishmael in their Islamic conquest to steal the Land of Israel and Jerusalem from the Hebrews.
