The branches of the Acacia tree in Israel look like this. Also, the Ark of the Covenant was built out of Acacia wood that was in the Holy of Holies, and was required to be sprinkled with the blood of the sacrificed lamb.

Hand drawn thorns. Very life-like. The quality of the shading makes them appear 3D so every thorn looks harmful and intimidating. You can feel the pain through this drawing as thorns are related to Jesus' crown of thorns, and it conjures up images of torture and blood shed. I can imagine thorns building up around someone in my animation, trapping them within themselves, their own demon. Acting as a barrier between them and the outside world. Much as an addict would feel inside their head.

How to Make a 'Crown of Thorns' Tutorial. SO EASY! I want to make 3-4 of these and put either large pillar candles or a vase of tullips in the center (for the Easter dinner table). I can also use this for the top of the large cross I want in our living room (and anything else I can think of)!!!
