This piece was done for my for my Art as Communication class. This is my Propaganda project.
I wanted to impliment a different style of propaganda. One that stressed humility and meekness, rather self promotion and vain glory. This "Meek Propaganda" is different because it stems from a different kingdom then those on earth. It comes from the teachings of Jesus Christ on the sermon on the mount. He spoke of people who were humble servants and how they would be blessed to reign in His soon coming kingdom.
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
The butterflys come from the idea of being nervous. This is not to imply that meekness is simply defined as being nervous, because it is not. Rather this idea was inspired by the words of Paul in 1Corinthians:
"And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
