The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins by Liphart, Baron Ernest Friedrich von is a true masterpiece from the 19th century. Liphart was a painter by trade, and a noted art expert and art collector from what is now Tartu in Estonia. The Parable of the Wise and Follish Virgins Painting was originally painted in 1886. The medium used was oil on canvas. The beauty of this giclee canvas print is that it shows the bridegroom (Christ) awaiting to receive all those who are true and faithful unto and into his Fathers kingdom. Those who are foolish will likewise be turned away from the gates of the kingdom.
A closer look at the Ten Virgins Canvas Print and one will see that their pots have turned upside down resulting in water consequently spilling out. Not only were there lamps not trimmed, and oil they had not, the “waters of life” had spilt out from amongst their pots… Let this painting serve as a constant reminder to keep our lamps trimmed and oil ready for the bridegroom. Those who fail to do so will loose access to not only the waters of life but entrance into the fathers kingdom. “Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
