Daniel and the lions by Raipun Daniel and the lions by Raipun
a Biblical work, done in oil.
another one of my favorites .
My brother posed for Daniel. The fact that his name is also Daniel inspired me to make this Artwork!

Too bad i do not have a better picture!

Words can not describe how much i appreciate each and every one of your comments ! It warms the heart.
Because i'm quite busy with other things aside from deviantART i can not reply to each person individually ( although i wish i could) but i DO read them all.

In my scrabbook you can find a picture of the painting in real life , giving you an idea of the actual size and colors.

more will be added later , answering a few of the questions asked in the comments.

This is fantastic, as are all of your pieces.  I especially appreciate this one since I think there aren't too many artists that draw biblical/religious stories these days, especially with such amazing detail.  I love your wonderful take on it, and it should be added to the classics among biblical art!

I love this work. It's nice to see in this day and age when people are more concerned with me, aliens, and science that someone still thinks of and draws inspiration from the old text. It is a truly inspiring work

To be honest the only problem I have is Daniel's pose.

I always like the pictures of Daniel that have a lion resting it's head in his lap.

This pose just doesn't really show much faith in God on Daniel's part.

Awesome work. So, if your brother's name is Daniel then what's yours? If you want to check out an awesome song check out this song called He Made A Way. I've got it on a CD by a group called The Inspirations. This song is pretty inspirational. Just a question but do you happen to have a favorite bible story or one that really inspires you? Don't ask why, but I have some weird feeling about Noah's Ark. Not sure why, but I have quite a few songs in my iTunes about him.

Other than the fact that Daniel seems kind of old, when he was actually only about 16 to 18, and that the lion looks hostile when God made them calm, it's a good work of art.

Daniel's timidity and open fear while in the midst of a major miracle; is a wonderful revelation to our own hearts in the face of our own miracles. We trust only for a moment and then fall back, even to doubt during the miracle itself. Wow, I love your work.

beautiful.. but why would the lioness be aggressive to him? they were completely tame with Daniel, God's promise is absolute. I'm a Muslim by the way and we also believe in this story.

The color scheme here is deeply resonant of older forms of Biblical art, which I really appreciate here. It's also natural to the subject at hand, which helps! Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed dwelling on this image.
