Early life. Akiane Kramarik was born on July 9, 1994, in Mount Morris, Illinois, to a Lithuanian mother and a non-practicing Catholic American father. Kramarik professed she saw the face of Jesus Christ in her visions. Her education began at a parochial school, but she was later homeschooled.
The Head of Christ, also called the Sallman Head, is a 1940 portrait painting of Jesus of Nazareth by American artist Warner Sallman (1892–1968). As an extraordinarily successful work of Christian popular devotional art, it had been reproduced over half a billion times worldwide by the end of the 20th century.
For the first time in more than 15 years, the original Prince of Peace — painted by then 8-yr old art prodigy Akiane Kramarik — was unveiled in November 2019. Instantly, it was purchased by an anonymous U.S. art collector for $850,000.
The record for the youngest professional artist was achieved by Arushi Bhatnagar (India, b. 1 June 2002). She had her first solo exhibition at the Kalidasa Akademi in Ujjain, India, on 11 May 2003 when she was 344 days (or 11 months) old. Her first painting was sold for 5000 Rupee (£65).
Today, she’s finished more than 250 paintings . She told a Chicago TV news outlet in February that her original “Prince of Peace” had recently sold for more than $800,000. “Every day if I didn’t paint I felt empty,” Kramarik said in an interview. “I still paint every day at 3 in the morning.”
Jesus ‘ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua.
The oldest known portrait of Jesus , found in Syria and dated to about 235, shows him as a beardless young man of authoritative and dignified bearing. He is depicted dressed in the style of a young philosopher, with close-cropped hair and wearing a tunic and pallium—signs of good breeding in Greco-Roman society.
Shroud of Turin, also called Holy Shroud, Italian Santa Sindone , a length of linen that for centuries was purported to be the burial garment of Jesus Christ. It has been preserved since 1578 in the royal chapel of the cathedral of San Giovanni Battista in Turin, Italy.
Despite the complexities of the modern world, Kramarik , now 23, holds fast to the youthful wonder she possessed since her earliest days of painting.
Today , Akiane continues to paint and also travels the world as an art ambassador. “While I was living in Lithuania, I had the opportunity to help the educational government to change the laws there, to have more creative education,” she says. “ Currently , I’m funding my own art and science academy.”
The masterpiece of Salvator Mundi (Saviour of the World) is one of 15 known paintings by da Vinci and shows Jesus Christ holding what appears to be a glass orb. However, in the painting , which dates back to around 1500, there are no signs of refraction or reflection from the glass orb.
The title Prince of Peace is often used to refer to Jesus Christ especially during the Christmas season. That is because of a Messianic prophecy made by the Jewish prophet Isaiah over 600 years before the birth of Christ in the city of Bethlehem in Palestine.
