Zahvat

'Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum'


The story of Redemption: the Father giving his very Self to humanity, through the Spirit, in giving us Christ through the Virgin Mary, and finally leaving us the Eucharist.

Zahvat is a Croatian word with no exact English equivalent. Connoting absolute giving, in this context it has to do with God's majestic activating movement.

Coal dust and yellow sand from England, red earth from the Croatian island of Mljet, on hessian on board.
