The round surface beneath Christ’s feet represents the earth and the halo on his head represents divinity. Christ’s right hand symbolizes blessing. In his left hand, he holds a book with the words “EGO SUM LUX MUNDI”, which translates in English to “I am the light of the world”. The symbols of alpha and omega hanging on either side of Christ. These symbolize the beginning and end. The fourfold images represent four evangelists. To the right, an angel is seen beside the lion holding one of its hind legs, which is a symbol of St. Mark. To the left, an angel holding the tail of the bull is a symbol of St. Luke. The other two evangelists fit into the triangular space on either side of the mandorla. The angel holding the gospel book represents St. Matthew while the other angel is holding an eagle in his arms represents St. John. Below the mural painting of Christ is St. Thomas, St. Bartholomew, Mother of God, St. John the Evangelist, St. James, and San Felipe. Noticeably, the Mother of God holds a bowl where red rays emerge from it. This is a symbol of Christ’s blood. Christ appears from the background causing a movement outwards to the center of the composition, which is directed by the patterned sense of the outlines. The skillful use of color is to create volume. The exceptional nature of this work and its pictorial strength have awed many viewers and also have inspired many later on artists, such as
