This is a self-portrait of Denver. The red cross represents Jesus’ crucifixion and the metallic silver/gold sword represents the sword that was used to pierce Jesus’ side.
Denver painted the cross and the sword in the sky behind him (not going into him). The silver-blue form above the red cross represents the moon in the night sky.
He painted “the light of life” as Denver calls it, to his right on a stand, to symbolize Denver today spreading the good Word of the Lord.
