The entire surface of this image of Jesus Breaking Bread - an image of the first Eucharist - is patterned with Navajo blanket designs. At the feet of Jesus is a basket containing fragments of bread and a jug of wine, a cup of which is held in his hand.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America’s indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the reconciliation of the spiritual vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land.

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
