"A Line Drawn" - fine art print

"The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.  In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”  They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8: 3-7)


In the painting "A Line Drawn," there is a moving representation of the biblical account found in John 8:1-11, where Jesus confronts the hypocrisy of the religious leaders. The scene focuses on the deliberate hand of Jesus as it etches into the ground. As per the scripture, this moment occurs when the scribes and Pharisees present a woman accused of adultery before Jesus, demanding to know whether she should be stoned according to the Law of Moses. Jesus responds not with hasty judgment, but by stooping down to write with his finger in the sand, pausing the agitated atmosphere with a silent but powerful act.

One cannot help but notice the sole butterfly in the image, its wings open in full splendor next to a cold, hard stone. The butterfly, an emblem of transformation and new life, contrasts starkly with the stone, an instrument of death and judgment. This juxtaposition echoes the deep message of the narrative: the transformation of the heart versus the hardness of the law.

The painting invites contemplation of the human condition, suggesting that within each person there lies the potential for both judgment and grace. The religious leaders are ready to condemn, their hearts as unyielding as the stone, yet Jesus encourages a path of mercy. He prompts those without sin to cast the first stone, and one by one, they leave, recognizing their own failings.
