The Concept and Description of the Work


Art should stem from life experiences and the essence of human nature. The flow of people, events, time, places, and things in everyday life serves as the inspiration for artistic creation, making the works rich in interest and stories.

In 2023, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Pope Francis's pontificate and to strengthen the 80-plus years of diplomatic relations between Taiwan and the Vatican, the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to the Holy See organized a special exhibition titled "Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Pope Francis’s Pontificate: The Five Loaves and Two Fish Special Exhibition." The exhibition featured 27 works by renowned Taiwanese artist Tseng Ying-Tung, all centered around the theme of "Five Loaves and Two Fish" and related topics. The showcased artworks allowed viewers to revisit the profound meaning of this miracle, and attendees were amazed by the faithful representation and celebration of Jesus's miracle.
