Personally I don't think you need the text. The title and work itself speak your point. I think it's well done, I don't agree with the comment, but it's well done. Good title, nice work.

I don't usual care for "message" art, but this works for me because it seems authentic.
The original title was OK. Why did you change it?

I like it just the way it is - color, composition, etc. You don't need text.

i feel like it does need something on bottom left....even if it's just very dark green or brown behind the red......so the text idea could be an interesting addition...

I like the curvy lines you used in the blood and in the top symbol

Tony,
Thank you all for the comments.
Changed the title to fewer words!
I also think lower left is lacking & that is where I would have put in the text (title) had I been capable. My handwriting is quite good, until I put it on canvas!
Again...thank you

What a fantastic painting. The colour choice and shading are excellent and the composition gives a great sense of depth. Very well done!!!

Art,
Thank you so much! Haven't done much shading in my paintings so thought maybe this pic would be easy practice. Wasn't sure if it worked. Hard for me to spot the obvious errors in my own stuff. So glad you like it.

I was rather taken a back by seeing so many religious symbols. Being from india myself the topmost symbol struck me a bit.
Its a fine representational work very much valid on todays earth where we everyday gets split up around religion.
The work is excellent by me. As La said you should share it more.
