Biography
One of the great mysteries of the world is housed quietly and humbly in the facilities at San Francisco de Asis (Rancho de Taos, NM). It is a painting that has traveled the world and been featured in numerous important collections, finally to find itself here, where pilgrims consistently testify that the opportunity to view it is life-altering..."The Shadow of the Cross," painted by 18th-century artist Henri Ault before the discovery of luminescent materials, is a portrait of Christ by the Sea of Galilee in daylight. However, in darkness, the image glows and changes. A cross appears over the shoulder of the Christ figure, and multiple other phenomena--including motion--are witnessed to occur.
