For God So Loved the World

 The Art
The statue is of John Bunyan, the writer of Pilgrims progress, erected in the city of Bedford. Ironically he seems to have spent a considerable part of his life there in prison for doing nothing more than preaching the Gospel. Throughout the book he wrote frequently of the "Celestial City", aka, the New Jerusalem which all Christians look forward to. I therefor painted in a skylark, which sings as it rises into the sky.
 
The Scripture
I think I have pretty much summed up this scripture in the above!
