Black Icons of the Bible by James C. Lewis in time for Christmas

A pregnant "Mary & Joseph" by James C. Lewis (Book of Matthew) is the perfect image for the Advent season of waiting and expectation for what is ahead.
GEORGIA---Just in time for Christmas, the creative shop of James C. Lewis (N3k Photo Studios) is making his "Icons of the Bible" available for every home. The "Icons" series of contemporary Black actors portraying Biblical figures was launched today on FineArtAmerica.com. N3K Photo Studios is a one stop creative shop located in Atlanta, GA. The "Icons of the Bible" are available as prints and even throw pillows. In his own words, "Experience the Gospel in living color" this holiday season. [Purchase]
