“Gathering under His Wings” by Melanie Dugan │ #SlowArt

In the scriptures, the Lord compares Himself to a hen wanting to gather her chicks (Luke 13:34). Dugan has included more animals under the hen’s protective wings—to represent those who are sometimes rejected by the world but are loved by God.
