Kim Ki-Chang: Korean Jesus Paintings Remembered on Late Artist’s Birthday

It was noted in Fr. David's class that in many cultures that received Roman-rite missionaries, Christ is often depicted as a native. I can think of at least two reasons for this: to emphasize the Incarnation and also that Christ came for all men, not just Western Europeans. This is contrasted with the depiction of Christ in icons in Orthodox churches, which are found not only in Europe and the Middle East. The representation of Christ was rather fixed, with respect to His ethnicity.
