silky smooth!

THE IDEA FOR SILKWORM INITIALLY CAME FROM A BOOK CALLED ‘IMAGES AND SHADOWS OF DIVINE THINGS’ BY JONATHAN EDWARDS. THE BOOK IS ABOUT TYPOLOGY IN THE BIBLE. EDWARDS SAW THINGS IN NATURE AND SAID THEY WERE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED BY GOD TO REPRESENT SOMETHING SPIRITUAL.

THIS IS WHAT HE SAID ABOUT THE SILKWORM:

“The silkworm is a remarkable type of Christ, which, when it dies, yields us that of which we make such glorious clothing. Christ became a worm for our sakes, and by his death KINDLED that righteousness with which believers are clothed, and thereby procured that we should be clothed with robes of glory.”










︎ I JUST THOUGHT THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL. MY MOTIVATION IN THIS SPACE TO CREATE THE FINEST THINGS I POSSIBLY CAN COMES FROM MY PERSONAL BELIEF THAT CHRIST CREATED THE FINEST THING IMAGINABLE, “ROBES OF GLORY”.
