We’re pleased to present an online gallery of beautiful pictures of Jesus Christ, including portraits many believe to be the Real Face of Jesus
A note from the Founder of Art & SoulWorks…
Jesus said, “If you love me, feed my sheep.” This is the reason Art & SoulWorks exists. We love Jesus and have a mission to share His love and inspiration through artwork including pictures of Jesus Christ, such as “Prince of Peace” as painted by a variety artist including, Thomas Kinkade, Akiane Kramarik and others.
In 2008, through what we believe to be a divine appointment, we partnered with Akiane and the Kramarik family to share Akiane's “Prince of Peace” painting with the world when Art & SoulWorks began licensing Akiane Kramarik's art . For over a decade Art & SoulWorks was the trusted licensor of “Prince of Peace” and art by Akiane Kramarik, creating many affordable and beautiful gifts featuring Jesus such as bookmarks, calendars, notecards and journals - that are no longer available as Akiane recently informed us that she has chosen to be completely independent. We wish her well!
And the story continues …
Todd Burpo was so excited to learn another child had been to heaven and saw Jesus that he called Mark Kramarik, Akiane's father and obtained permission to use the Akiane's "Prince of Peace" image of Jesus in his upcoming book, titled "Heaven is for Real", the New York Times best seller that was made into the blockbuster movie "Heaven is is for Real" starring Greg Kinnear.
If you’re not familiar with the Heaven is for Real story, here it is in a nutshell: In the weeks and months following his emergency appendectomy, 4-year-old Colton Burpo began revealing his experience of visiting Jesus in heaven!
Over the next few years, Colton’s father must have shown him a hundred pictures of Jesus so that he too could know Jesus’ face. In December 2006, Colton and his father Todd Burpo were watching CNN’s news story about child prodigy, Akiane Kramarik, including her life-like images of Jesus. When Colton saw “Prince of Peace” in the news story, he identified this as the Real Face of Jesus, declaring: “Dad, that one’s right!”
Colton identified Akiane’s Jesus picture as the Real Face of Jesus. In fact, Akiane’s “Prince of Peace” is the only portrait of Jesus that Colton has confirmed as the likeness of Jesus that he spent time with in Heaven.
Eventually, Colton’s parents shared this story in the book Heaven is for Real, a New York Times #1 bestseller. People wanted more of the story – there was such a thirst to learn more about this little boy and his astounding experience. That’s why the book Heaven is for Real was turned into the Heaven is for Real movie in 2014 where it begins showing a little Lithuanian girl painting a picture of Jesus.
Here at Art & SoulWorks, requests for Jesus art are honored by providing many options
Once the Heaven is for Real book was published with the little picture of Jesus inside, people started calling to find out how to get a copy of the Heaven is for Real Jesus picture, “Prince of Peace”, a picture that Akiane has said on interview with Oprah, TBN, Robert Schuler and many other that this was how she saw Jesus. Demand for “Prince of Peace” prints in our online gallery has continued to skyrocket, thanks a gift from God, The Heaven is for Real book and the blockbuster Heaven is for Real movie.
Colton Burpo substantiated that Prince of Peace, by Akiane Kramarik was Jesus when he declared, “Dad, that one’s right!”
Since the publication of the Heaven is for Real Book and Movie release, so many people have shared their heavenly experiences with us. For some the question “What does Jesus look like?” has been answered. Others are still searching. People around the world are eager to have pictures of Jesus in their homes – Jesus pictures are a constant reminder of His love. Pictures of Christ are also a visual witness to others about the reality of God and eternity. As Colton Burpo says “Heaven is for Real and your gonna like it!"
"Prince of Peace" by Akiane Kramarik portrayal of Jesus is striking, and there are other timeless image of Jesus by the masters, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Rembrandt and the late Thomas Kincaid and living artist dedicated to Jesus who like Greg Olsen or Nathan Green depict Christ in many of their paintings. One day, in eternity, we will know the real face of Jesus for certain.
Father Forgive Them, another painting of Jesus by Akiane, is featured on the cover Akiane's autobiography titled "Akiane, her life, her art, her poetry - the Akiane's story as told Akiane and her mother, Foreli Kramarik. Available here.
