Tree of Life

To unveil a painting is an uncommon thing. When you consider the process of creating a painting, from concept to finished art, it can take months and sometimes years to get the final result the artist wants.

          (Elfred Lee’s The Invitation)

It’s been over 13 years since the museum unveiled Elfred Lee’s Noah’s Ark painting titled: “The Invitation to a crowd of well over one hundred in Syracuse, NY.  Many of whom took a print home to place on their walls.

On Saturday December 30th 2017 at 11am, another Elfred Lee original fine art piece will make it’s debut and you are invited. The unveiling will be conducted at the conclusion of a talk titled the same as the painting The Tree of Life” 

The painting is so colorful and the design  inspiring so that the few who have had a sneak peak glimpse were overwhelmed with positive emotion.

The location of the event will be at the Fulton SDA Church 45 West 4th St. South in Fulton, NY 13069. Here’s the DIRECTIONS    See you there!

Eat From This Tree and Live Forever

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

 

Who wouldn’t want to live forever… and according to the book of Genesis, The Tree of Life was originally the medium God was to use, to perpetuate human existence throughout eternity. However there was one problem. A nearby counterfeit tree had tempting fruit, and it’s affect, resulted in death.

Fast forward 6,000 years and you have the Earth ready to “close up shop”, awaiting for it’s Devine “make-over.”
When this happens, this Tree of Life, the same tree, protected and held in storage from Genesis, will be replanted on Earth and the inhabitants will once again eat its life giving fruit…and so begins again, humanities journey of eternal life.

Archeological illustrator, Elfred Lee, assembled the necessary research to construct the only accurate depiction of the Tree mentioned in the book of Genesis and then making a second appearance in the book of Revelation.

This image on canvas comes in 4 edition sizes. Go to our MUSEUM STORE to explore the Tree which awaits our return…to give us Life.

Unveiling The Invitation

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

It was time to meet artist Elfred Lee as he nonchalantly picked up off the stainless luggage carousel a long black PVC tube that held a 4 x 8 ft. canvas original painting. Looking more like a bazooka than a painting, I was amazed he had gotten through airport security.

The Westvale SDA church in Syracuse, N.Y. had invited Elfred for this important weekend, which would culminate in the unveiling of The Invitation

The audience hung on every word as Elfred recounted his rescue as a child from a WW2 Japanese prison camp where he first learned to draw. When he shared the 35mm slides of his expeditions up Mt. Ararat in search of the famed Noah’s Ark, recounting the testimonies of the Ark eyewitnesses he had interviewed, the audience showed no interest in letting Lee quit his presentation. Audience excitement grew as the time neared to finally see Noahs Ark captured on canvas.

Evening of April 18, 2004 finally arrived.  The people were seated;  As the black cloth dropped to the floor, the audience let out a simultaneous gasp. Unexpectedly they rose and gave their approval with a standing ovation.

When they took their seats, Elfred spoke. He pointed and described the symbolism hidden in the painting and reason for certain design elements. Lee ended his tour of the painting with this last symbol “Notice Noah’s shadow?”, Lee said. “It’s the shadow of a cross.” Continuing he said, “Noah was a carpenter, so was Christ, Noah made a way of salvation for the people, so did Christ.”  Profound and they’s more…so much more.

People milled about asking question after question to Elfred. Dozens of inspired audience members purchased their copy of The Invitation and headed home. What a night.

The Invitation – Noah’s Ark – Phase Two

But I believed people needed an accurate painting of Noahs ark instead of cutesy versions with giraffes and elephants sticking their heads out of flimsy reed boats.

Little cartoon paintings didn’t do justice to such a massive event in our planet’s history where all life was destroyed by thousands of volcanoes, massive tidal waves, earthquakes and storms that tore through the Earth. This worldwide graveyard of fossils needed their silent story told.

Animals sprung to life as he captured that last moment in time before the door to life forever closed on the ancient world. Every object took on new depth of meaning and significance as Elfred shared some of the symbolism hid everywhere in the painting. Our excitement grew, realizing that this wouldn’t just be beautiful and accurate, but it had the potential to touch hearts as they saw the history of Genesis and gospel proclaimed in art.
