Unseen Holy hands pencil illustration
The structure of an engineer
Levers function on fluid joints
Housed in a tabernacle
The vessel of a greater mind
Seen by many
The not so blind
With favored praise
Grace and truth
Faith beneath the firmament
Never subject to a polling booth
I have always enjoyed illustration techniques from masters of old and seeing an 1879 royalty-free illustration inspired me to think outside the square.
I recall vivid memories from my childhood years watching mum doodling while talking on the phone. She drew lines with an ink pen or lead pencil on a notepad beside the old handset phone. She used the phone’s crank handle to ring the exchange and talk to a telephonist who would plug Mum’s line into the line she required and as she chatted she drew. That doesn’t seem that long ago.
The need to communicate will not change. The rapid increase in knowledge and technology makes those phones obsolete but new technologies have sped up our access to the past from where the illustration inspiration came from.
Despite rapid change in technology the timeless, creative, storytelling pencil and ink illustration tools have not changed.
I researched books of medical illustrations, studied the human body, visited many places of worship and crowded sporting complexes to see the wonders of mankind living out their passions. I noted their passionate expressions of interest celebrations were evident in the use of raised hands.
I recently visited a house of worship and watched uplifted hands toward heaven. The participant’s inner selves were being reflected in worship toward a God who could not be seen with the natural eyes.
What was happening inside the structure of the raised hands captured my imagination. It was clear they had an unashamed connection to the invisible. When I realized what was happening in their spirit I had this idea that the God they worship made their skeleton and flesh to house the spirit in which they worshipped. This revelation had to be drawn.
The visible is reflecting the invisible for which no amount of skepticism will change the reality of those who have known the experience.
The amazing thing to me is that with my hands I have drawn this image and for any medical practitioner or one who understands the body functions it really is a marvel beyond certain levels of comprehension. Man’s opinions in a polling booth cannot change this fact.
God made us in His image and likeness and placed us in a dirt body. He can fix any broken body.
Any person who wants to raise their hands in praise of Him knows the glory of the supernatural being expressed in the tabernacle of a human body. Of that I am sure.
