This week’s artwork is The Ascension by JESUS MAFA.  JESUS MAFA is a response to the New Testament readings from the Lectionary by a Christian community in Cameroon, Africa.  Each of the readings were selected and adapted to dramatic interpretation by the community members.  Photographs of their interpretations were made, and these were then transcribed to paintings.  See www.jesusmafa.com.
