Artist Peter Olsen’s imagination knows no bounds. Here, he has carved scenes of Jesus’ healing in wood, although at first glance you wouldn’t know it. Below, we feature Jesus’ healing of the leper, the Centurian’s servant, the man with palsy, Peter’s mother-in-law, the two blind men, and the man with the withered hand.
A NOTE ON MEDIUM: “Each of these are created using pyrography, carving, engraving, paint, stain, and found objects (on some pieces). On selected works, in addition to the carved imagery I engraved the entire scripture verse BY HAND—definitely an exercise in patience. I prefer to use one shot oil enamel on the woods—great durability and amazing color.” — Peter Olsen
