include paintings that depict the Passion of Jesus when He was being crucified. Several masterpieces have been done in this category of art, including works by Durer, Rubens
, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Bellini, and El Greco. Crucifix art
is commonly used in households, though it isn't unusual to see some version of cross art in a church.
Despite this, most Christian's still adopt this art category for their purposes because of the familiar biblical stories and faith-affirming messages
embodied in the majority of imagery that make up this art style's content. A large portion of biblical scene art has content from various stories of the Bible, such as Daniel in the lion's den, Noah's ark
, the Garden of Eden, and the Last Supper, in addition to biblical figures like angels. However, biblical scene art doesn't necessarily have to be literal and there is a lot of art in this category that addresses themes of faith, hope, overcoming trials, blessings and prayer
as well as contemporary works that quote actual verses from various biblical texts.The image of the crucifix helps to remind believers of the devotion that Jesus Christ
had for them and the sacrifice that He made on their behalf.
