Mounted 41.9 x 38.1; Image 25.4 x 22.9; After his baptism by St John the Christian bible tells that Jesus sought solitude in the Judaean desert where his filial obligation to God was tested 3 times by Satan. Jesus rebuffed Satan and at the end of his 40 days and 40 nights of temptation Angels appeared to comfort him. Celia Roberts has painted her own imagining of this biblical event and her characters are portrayed bathed in warm light, glowing in the setting desert sun. This work of allegory can be viewed in a way separate to the biblical connotation and has a feel of well being invested in it.
