Enjoy these works of art by Mennonite and Amish artists in thanksgiving for the life and witness of Menno Simons. The first few represent the "traditional" art of Mennonites, which were limited to landscapes and decorative art, after a church elder banned portraits and images of God citing the second commandment. Some contemporary Mennonite artists are pushing the edges and experiemneting not only with portraitures, but innovative themes which offer social statements.
