An original woodcut print, printed onto fine Japanese paper. Designed and printed entirely by hand, this is a high-quality original artwork.
This design is based on a a carved wooden cross that I had the privilege of seeing, made by Christians in Pakistan, a nation where Christians face persecution for their faith in Christ. This minimalist design depicts the bread and the cup within the symbol of the cross.
"When we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, aren’t we sharing in the blood of Christ? And when we break the bread, aren’t we sharing in the body of Christ? And though we are many, we all eat from one loaf of bread, showing that we are one body." (1 Corinthians 10:15-17 NLT)

Each print is slightly individual! Due to being handmade, each print varies slightly in terms of definition and detail and they include some speckles from the printing process - this is a natural result of woodcut printing and it is part of the design. All prints meet a high quality of finish. Individual prints may vary slightly in size.
The Japanese paper that this print is made from is high quality and tear-resistant, but also very delicate. Please handle with care, and please do not attempt to trim.
Meet the Maker
Ellie Walker is a graphic designer and illustrator based currently in Oxford.
My designs featured on Cheerfully Given are inspired directly from the poetical and life-giving words of the Bible. Through these illustrations I have sought to capture the spirit of the passage that inspires each piece.
I am drawn to the tactile process of printmaking - in particular screen printing and woodcut relief printing. The immersive process of printmaking requires heightened focus and submission to the sometimes unexpected variables that can affect the final outcome. It is when I am absorbed in this process that I feel truly connected to God, the Creator.
Each print is individually handmade, signed and editioned. They make a perfect artistic addition to your own home or for your friends and loved ones.
