In a recent Aleteia article, Philip Kosloski discusses the meaning of colors in Christian art. While, the article specifically discusses black, brown, green, red and white, it was a line about gold which stood out to me:
“[G]old reflects the radiant light of God and reminds us that for those in heaven there are no shadows.”
What a beautiful concept. It reminds me of an image I used in a previous post:
I hadn’t before considered the predominance of gold used in this mosaic. Now I see the small, golden pieces of this mosaic as a collective representation of God’s radiance.
