Precious Blood

The Adoration of the Lamb – Eyck

This image of the white paschal lamb, the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God), is a detail from the Ghent altarpiece, by artist J. Van Eyck. It shows a lamb, symbolizing Christ, spilling His blood into a chalice on an altar and surrounded by adoring angels, who hold the instruments of the Savior's Passion and Death.
