Interesting composition. Judging by the title, I'd say the picture is religious in nature; Christian most likely? The man appears to be wearing a robe attire similar to that of a monk's. His hands nonchalantly folded atop a bible. The bread represents the Eucharist, or Jesus Christ. The bread is is placed in the anatomical area of the heart further strengthening my preconceptions regarding this beautifully painted picture. If I'm correct, maybe shoot me a reply? : D I'd love to hear from the artist himself/herself!
