Who Is Your Shepherd


Who Is Your Shepherd was designed to be a provocative piece, using religious themes to highlight prejudice. At the time of this painting there was a very strong sense of fear and hatred towards Muslims, seeing something written in arabic had almost become threatening in itself. Who Is Your Shepard highlights the similarities between the Christian and Muslim faith whilst using the image of a sheep’s skull to say no to following the blanket stereotypes that are all too common in today’s media.
