Christ and the Young Child


Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1873



Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1873

“Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.” –¬†Luke 18:17

Upon entering Sankt Nikolai Kirke, the magnificent figure of Christ and the shy young boy presents an image of pure majesty. Viewers cannot help but observe the loving, protective relationship as Christ affectionately puts His hand on the child’s cheek and gestures toward him. Looking out at the viewer, Christ seems to issue an invitation to “become as a little child.” ¬†(Excerpt taken from The Master’s Hand: The Art of Carl Heinrich Bloch)
