“Before I formed you in your mother’s womb, I chose you. Before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.” -Jeremiah 1:10. In Christianity, Prophets are chosen and called by God to be the communication channel between God and humans. Here Omiros depicted a Prophet in full-length taking the whole space of the canvas suggesting his greatness. He is an elderly man with a long white beard. The Prophet is wearing an all white robe symbolizing his holiness and purity of his soul. A bright white figure of light, the Prophet illuminates the whole composition as it stands out with the dark purpurian background. He became God’s messenger not because of his wisdom or education but because God had chosen him. Omiros used a purpurian background to demonstrate Prophet’s role to deliver God’s word and divine blessing to Earth.
