"Isaiah 14:12" by Lisa Ann Hoffman

I have a talented artist in my OT Introduction course this year, Lisa Ann Hoffman Candidate for Holy Orders, Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey. Briefly at the start of class this morning she shared her drawing of Isaiah 14:12, part of the widely known poem about the thrusting down out of heaven of a boastful figure, described in astral imagery. Here is the image:

Isaiah 14:12

Comments (click below) are welcome. Lisa has said she welcomes hearing how others see and interpret her artwork. Part of what Lisa notes about this image is the strong impression that the figure is heavily weighted down under God's judgment. I believe she conveys well how frail all opposition appears over against Isaiah's vision of God's rock-solid reality.
