At age 4, Akiane began having vivid visions of Heaven, Jesus, angels, and God. Her parents, who were atheists at the time, came to realize that these visions were more than just the active imagination of a child. From that point on, Akiane became very passionate about drawing and painting.
She began praying and searching diligently for someone that looked similar to who she saw in her vision of Jesus. One day, after hours of focused prayer, a man knocked on her door. He had heard she was looking for a model for a portrait of Jesus and offered to sit for it. Akiane accepted his offer and the result is her first masterpiece, the Prince of Peace.
Akiane and her painting quickly gained international attention and has since appeared on hundreds of television shows and been featured in thousands of publications – both nationally and internationally. Within a very short time, Akiane’s art work has become a global phenomenon.
This exquisite reproduction of Akiane’s portrait of Jesus is considered to be her first masterpiece. Akiane explains that love and truth are represented on the illuminated side of Jesus’ face, while the opposite side reflects darkness and suffering. The light in his eyes is added as a reminder that He is always with us. The subtle tones of his skin clearly portray his Middle Eastern decent.
Thousands of people (including art collectors) have commented that this is the most intriguing portrait of Jesus they have ever seen. Now, because of the generous heart of one little girl, you too can own the painting that has inspired the faith of millions.
