Daniel Mitsui  ~  Religious Drawings  ~  ICXC NIKA




This is an ink drawing on a 9 1/4" × 13 1/8" piece of Bristol board. I drew it using fine-tipped black pens and red calligraphers’ ink applied with brushes.

The original has been sold.

The drawing includes nine small scenes from the life of Christ: the Adoration of the Magi, the Baptism in the Jordan, the Wedding at Cana, the Temptation in the Desert, the Transfiguration, the Crucifixion, the Harrowing of Hell, the Resurrection and the Last Judgment. Decorative borders of rose branches and grape vines link them together in a cruciform shape, suggesting the cover of a medieval evangelary. The monogram ICXC NIKA, written in large red letters, abbreviates the Greek phrase IHCOYC XPICTOC NIKA, or Jesus Christ conquers.

I modified the colors when creating the print file (which is shown on this page); those on the original drawing are different. The miniature of the Last Judgment was drawn on a separate piece of vellum and edited into the print file.

An open-edition giclée print of this drawing is available for $114. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address.
