Handhold

<<

How much can one hand say?

Love, savagery, sacrifice.

This shirt shares a straightforward graphic of the crucifixion, the greatest sacrifice and show of love that mankind will ever experience. The hand, which says "I Love You" in American Sign Language, is pierced just below the wrist, the location of where nails would have been placed on a crucified prisoner in the first century. The word SAVAGE not only refers to the fact that Jesus laid down his life, but also reflects how hardcore he is to have gone through such pain.

The Subtitle verse, in English and French, comes from John 15:13- "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
