The understanding of Luther, and the spirit he represents, has global significance for this new generation, especially under this complex political and religious climate. Martin Luther is not only a significant symbol for the Protestants, but also for the general public. His spirituality can productively illuminate how one can make connections with the world, that surpasses ethnicity, politics and even religion! This painting was completed at the 500th Anniversary of religious reform, from the perspective of a Chinese artist.
