Hyla Divine Mercy on Canvas - Frame 8714




Frame 8714 is a honey pecan burl that is 2.125" wide. This frame, along with frame 10352, ranks among the very best frames we've ever worked with. Another stunning wood, this frame's elegance and beauty is astounding. 

Adolf Hyla paint­ed this ver­sion of the Divine Mer­cy in 1943 as a votive offer­ing in grat­i­tude for the safe­ty of his fam­i­ly dur­ing World War II. Paint­ed after the death of St. Fausti­na, the image is based on the descrip­tions from Faustina’s diary he was given by the nuns at the con­vent, and a small copy of the first paint­ing. Hyla’s orig­i­nal paint­ing showed Jesus walk­ing through a coun­try land­scape, but that back­ground has been replaced in repro­duc­tions. This image is known for the pierc­ing eyes of Christ, and for the depic­tion of Jesus walk­ing towards the view­er. The Hyla is often called the Krakow image, named after the city where the orig­i­nal resides.

Please note the following:

  • You can select a language for your Image at no additional cost. 
  • The Image will not update in your selected language – it will always show English. However, we will receive your correct language request and confirm this in your order receipt.
  • Images pictured on this website are not always proportional as the frame sizes differ. This is just a website limitation - the real product will be proportioned to the correct size frame.
  • Our Images are highly scratch resistant but it's always best to use a feather duster and be gentle on the canvas.
  • Our canvas and inks are waterproof, but please bless Images with holy water only in the colored section of the print.
  • Due to humidity changes, canvas may loosen during the winter months and re-tighten in the early Spring to late Fall. This is normal.
