YHS, Gold Leaf by Leona Matejkova

The inspiration to create this piece came from the doctorate thesis of Franciscan friar Petr Regalat Benes. The focus being on the symbol of YHS, which is the human name of God. This symbol consists of three letters and is framed by a sun disc with twelve rays. Sanct Bernardin of Siena started the use of this symbol in the 14th century.My own interpretation of this symbol takes from my personal experiences and is done with a modern twist. The material that I used for this piece was paper stretched to the wooden frame with golden watercolor and for finishing touches, sliced gold was added.
