In "The Carpenter", Nathan paints Christ at work with saw and wood. This is a view of Christ not often portrayed, but it says a great deal . . . the importance of dedication to one's craft, the value of a job well done, and the Savior's deep connection to humanity. A unique glimpse of Christ's life: thought-provoking , for the Carpenter was soon to be nailed to His wood. This painting is a wonderful statement for the workshop, businesses, or the home-the Carpenter is still at work in the lives and hearts of men.
