Artist's Description

Gall and Myrrh – by Brian Walther
Pencil

This piece represents the continuing battle between what many people want out of life and what they actually do in life. While we are all not perfect, it doesn’t mean that we can’t strive for perfection.

The text in the book reads:
Matthew 27:34 – They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. – KJV

Gall: anodyne to those who were crucified to render them insensible to pain.

Mark 15:23 – And they gave him wine to drink mingled with myrrh: but he did not drink. – KJV

Myrrh: as it stupefies the senses, he would not have that which mitigates death’s horrors
