TU ES SACERDOS
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
A priest holds the host and chalice, while demonic foes flee in terror. I prefer to draw the type of demon that was perfected in the art of Hieronymus Bosch - composed of disparate elements of men, animals, plants and inanimate objects. This, I think, communicates that evil is disordered and nonsensical.
The vestments have early medieval Northumbro-Irish patterns, as does the decorative border, which includes an inscription: Thou art a priest forever.
Medium: Drawing, color ink on calfskin vellum with gold and palladium leaf
Dimensions: 5" × 7 1/2"
The original drawing was made on private commission.
