Religious painting of Jesus as the light of life

Expressionist-style portrait of Jesus Christ whose title refers to the phrase he used to describe both himself and his disciples in the New Testament, being registered in the Gospel of John and in that of Matthew. While debating with the Jews, Christ claimed "I am the light of the world; "Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.". The rays that emanate from his hands and from his Sacred Heart also justify the episode in John 9:39, where Jesus explained metaphorically that he came to this world so that the blind could see. The entire work is solved by means of very loose brushstrokes that give it an aspect of being luminous, volatile, almost ghostly.
