"The Face Of Jesus"
These rings were created to salute the captain in every man, celebrating the most important elements in a man's life: Loyalty, Beauty, Wisdom, Honor, Family, Hope, Strength and Love. With each ring, a legend is told and unfolds, containing small elements and talismans that are forged, like the ancient swords that inspire them, into deeply oxidized Sterling silver and 14K yellow gold.
Name: “The Face Of Jesus”
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
- Lily Flower
My friend Dave Koenders is one of Galatea's best salesmen. He has been with me since I started the company. I wanted to make a ring which means something very dear to him.
Dave is a Christian, and tells me about his Faith frequently, so I used the symbols he told me about to make my rendition of Christ, from an artist's perspective.
When I created the face of Jesus, I wanted His eyes to capture His pain. But I also wanted them to show the love He has for all people. The lily on one side of the ring is the symbol for the Resurrection. The Holy Spirit, symbolized by a dove, is on the other. There are multiple crosses on the ring to remind believers to take up the cross daily and in doing so, live like Christ.
One of Dave's favorite Bible verses is, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. You shall love your neighbor as yourself." This verse, from John 3:16 and Mark 12:31, is written inside the ring. I believe you can do anything if you act in accordance with these words.
