His Image

In all His infinite glory and wisdom, God took the dust of the earth and created mankind in the image and likeness of Himself. He has blessed us with God-like qualities that are meant to display His glorious luster. He skillfully crafted our bodies and minds to withstand the crucibles in life that He uses to purify and refine us.

In Genesis, the Bible tells how God created the Earth and all of its inhabitants. The creation story is the most magnificent and sacred of all time, describing how God used his supreme authority and wisdom to bring the world to life. But, amongst all his diverse and beloved creations, he only created one species in his likeness – us.

His Artistry

God took the dust of the Earth and formed human beings, much like the way silver artisans take raw silver ore and turn it into objects of beauty. And as silversmiths cherish their work, God cherishes mankind.

Silver has been favored for centuries by craftsmen for its lustrous white metallic sheen, resistance to oxidation & corrosion, and malleability. God designed us to shine with the lustre of his love, to resist the temptation of sin and to learn to live in the glory of His word.

Humans are God’s greatest master-work.

He blessed us with intelligence and consciousness in order that we reflect his Almighty nature. He skilfully crafted our bodies, minds and souls to withstand the challenges that he sets in our way to purify us and build our spiritual character.

His Crucible

To think of God as a silversmith and humankind as His silver is a way to comprehend the trials and tribulations we all face in life. Each and every one of us is placed in God’s crucible. We feel the heat of personal challenges, the burning temptation to engage in sinful behavior. The scorching fires of difficulty and suffering are God’s way of testing and refining our character, of helping us become more like Him in the process.

“He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.”
Malachi 3:3

The Silversmith

the-silversmith

On one particular afternoon, as the ladies of a bible study take turns reading aloud and discussing the meaning of the holy words, they came to Malachi Chapter 3, Verse 3. “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.”

They discuss what this scripture is telling them about God, but knowing nothing of silver refining, find it confusing. Then, one of the women offers an idea. She proposes to visit a silversmith, and find out more about the refining process. This will better help them understand the lesson of Malachi 3:3.

At the next meeting, the woman reports back. She visited the local silversmith and watched him at work. Without mentioning the verse that sparked the curious visit, the woman simply explained that she wants to know about the art of silver metalworking.

Featured Treasure

Samson & the Lion

As Samson walked through vineyards on the way to Timnath, little did he know that what he was about to play the leading role a legendary scene, which would be remembered for centuries to come.

Suddenly, the roar of a lion shattered the air. The ferocious creature sprang out from the shadows, its fangs dripping and eyes gleaming as it lunged towards Samson. In that moment, an otherworldly power came him, the Holy Spirit imbuing Samson with a strength greater than any man on Earth.

With the force of the Divine running through him, Samson seized the bloodthirsty feline with his bare hands, tearing it to pieces. The battle between man and beast was won, though it was only through God’s will and power that Samson had the courage and strength to conquer his foe.

Inspired by the classical work of Italian sculptor Cristoforo Stati (1556 – 1619) and Christian imagery of antiquity, Samson and the Lion brings to life one of the most epic tales of the Bible. Dynamic in line with traditional, this collectible statue captures the very moment when heroic Samson grapples with the lion. The violent struggle is immortalised in solid silver, sculpted to be enjoyed from every angle with its sense of natural movement and action. Every little detail stands out, from the lions twisted mane and sharp claws, to the rustic texture of Samson’s robe and the expression on his face.
