This commission is about Jesus' first miracle, The Wedding Feast at Cana. It also represents Epiphany in that it introduced Jesus to the world and foreshadowed his death and resurrection sacrifice when he would atone for the sins of His Bride. This first miracle anticipates His own Wedding Day! The heavenly bride is meeting her Redeemer and Husband in the top part of the painting. The client's request was: the expression of joy upon tasting the new wine (heaven). It was commissioned for a particular space in his wine cellar!
