Many years ago, I was doing a project on how Jesus was depicted in art across the world in terms of art. It was indeed interesting project. I got to see photos of nativity scenes from countries all over the world- Ghana, Japan, Fiji, Aboriginal, Argentinian, and Norway to name a few. There was also depictions done of Jesus as he would have looked like in Colonial Days, as cowboys, and as a motorcycle enthusiast. Even though the subject was the same, Jesus and the Holy Family, each depiction took on the culture of the area. In the Japanese depiction, Joseph and Mary wore kimonos and had distinctly Japanese features. In the Fijian depiction, sarongs were worn and Joseph and Jesus had dark hair which was pulled up in the hairstyle worn by modern day Fijians. In the cowboy Jesus, Joseph and the wisemen are all wearing white stetsons. What this project taught me is that all of us, in some way, construct Jesus in our own image. We try to imagine Jesus as someone who we can relate to'; Jesus is someone just like us.
