COPTIC CHRISTIAN MOURNERS BY THE AMERICAN PASTEL ARTIST, DONNA YEAGER

Donna Yeager is an American pastel painter. One of her pieces of art, “Coptic Christian Mourners,” is dedicated to the mourning families of the 21 Coptic martyrs who were slain by the Islamists of ISIS in Libya on February 12, 2015.

Yeager used pastel on a photograph of families. The family showed dignity and generosity as they mourned their dead children. The 21 murdered Copts, who died with the name of Jesus Christ in their mouths, are now commemorated by the Coptic Orthodox Church as martyrs and saints on the 8th of Amshir of the Coptic calendar (corresponding to the 15th of February of the Georgian calendar). It is nice to see decent people across the world celebrating the courage of these neo-martyrs and their families.
