The Prodigal Son by Rembrandt

Very nice picture specially during Lent :) Fr Joe was talking about this picture. Probably Rembrandt painted this during his conversion. He put a lot of details in the painting. The son in the painting is bald, indicating a status of a slave. Take a look at the hands of the father. The left hand shows a fatherly hand, a strong and firm one. The right one looks like more motherly hand. But both are receiving the son back mercifully. May we always remember our merciful Father, who always waits us to begin again, as His children.
