This masterful work of Art, True Knowledge, represents an embodiment of a calm and depth of knowing that accompanies the acceptance of one universal truth: there will always be more to the mystery. A human mind can pursue with great diligence knowledge and answers to all of the questions of life, attempting to explain through systems of science, mathematics, or religion. All three of these disciplines incorporate an acknowledgement of the unknown, and the acceptance of the unknowable. In this work of Art the long gaze of wisdom sees beyond things and the need to know, with a calm collectedness. This work of Art was created to inspire the true embodiment of peace in the presence of great mystery.
True Knowledge is the first bronze sculpture that Jonathan has created entirely from Divine inspiration without the use of any model.
