safe/excite religious pieces of inspiration.

William Holman piece the shadow of death.
The Shadow of Death is a religious painting by William Holman Hunt on which he worked from 1870 to 1873, after his second trip to the Holy Land It depicts Jesus as a young man prior to his ministry, working as a carpenter. He is shown stretching his arms after sawing wood. The shadow of his outstretched arms falls on a wooden spar on which carpentry tools hang, creating a "shadow of death" prefiguring the crucifixtion His mother Mary is depicted from behind, gazing up at the shadow, having been looking into a box in which she has kept the gifts given by the Magi.
