This painting is based on the scripture Colossians 3:2, the headscarf is laced with handwritten promises and encouraging scriptures from the bible. Something to note, is that a headscarf is put on by the user, which reminds us that we are in control, that we can choose to set our minds on the things that are above, or not.


Ephesians 6 also talks about the full armour of God, and in verse 17, we are told to put on the helmet of salvation. Keeping our minds on the things of God helps us to have faith, and is also a useful tool to fight the lies of the enemy. There are so many truths and promises that God has given us and it is important that we have them stored in our minds and in our hearts.


RED: The red signifies the blood of Jesus Christ, it is because of His blood that we have access to salvation, His blood also acts as a covering. The red jewel on the necklace and in the scarf shows that the blood is on her mind and in her heart.


YELLOW: The yellow represents the joy and the presence of God. Yellow is also known to be a colour of hope and happiness, positivity, loyalty and honour.


Colossians 3:2

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Ephesians 6:17

Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.


Mind On Things Above
