Prince of Peace
“For many years a blurry image of the Prince of Peace appeared to me in my dreams and visions. Only after a mysterious carpenter came knocking on our door one afternoon that I knew it was the right time to paint the story of hope,” says Akiane. In Prince of Peace, painted when she was only 8 years old, Akiane portrays Jesus as the bringer of peace to the world.
Remarkably, the story of this piece is a real story of hope for Akiane. The painting itself has gone through many tribulations, including being stolen, recovered, then accidentally sold and hidden for many years.
Read our Magnifissance interview to see what Akiane learned about divine timing after her 16-year-long wait to see her prized painting once again.
