Water of Life


Water of Life is a personal prophetic painting by Wendy Manzo. The tree planted by the overflow represents foundational stability and vitality.

The painting also speaks to two aspects of the leadership journey: leading and synergy. The geese represent a ‘flock’ where the synergy and energy of the team.

Wendy says, “As I painted, a prevailing calm took over and I sensed the cascade of water was the river that flows from the throne room and I heard the phrase ‘the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations’. The presence of peace was strong. I saw doves, and then geese flying in formation”.

The leadership journey considers both the manner and attitude of the one leading and the dynamic between those being led. The dove represents the calm, gentle, and wise leading of the Holy Spirit and geese represent teamwork. In a flock of geese, there is no one leader, each bird takes turns flying in the front, falling back into formation when they are tired. In this way, the flock conserves energy. Geese are not born with this ability; they learn it as they care for one another. This symbolises being placed in a team, in a ‘flock’, where the synergy and energy of the team form an ease empowering one to perform the tasks ahead.

The river of life that runs from God’s throne in Revelation represents God’s life-giving presence. (Rev. 22:1-2; also Ezek. 47:1-12)

There are six geese in this painting. Six biblically represents humanity and many governmental aspects of work and worship. It also represents a heart for people. The fruit of the tree is depicted in red, yellow, and orange, representing passion, happiness, and intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

About Giclee printing.

Technically speaking, our prints are not prints at all, not in the common use of the term, but are fine art reproductions of original works. The quality is so high that it is difficult to tell between the reproduction and the original. Giclee Reproductions are premium high-resolution digital images produced on museum quality, Canson 300-320gsm Cotton Rag (fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) printed with archival Canon Lucia EX 12-colour pigment high-performance inks. Canon Lucia EX pigment inks achieve an “under glass” permanence of 95 years for colour images.

Giclee can be confusing, as many may incorrectly assume that all digital printing is equal. Essentially Giclee (pronounced ‘zhee-clay’) is an invented name from the French word ‘le gicleur’ meaning ‘to squirt’. Originally coined in 1991 to distinguish between common digital prints and the highest quality form of art reproductions using wide format inkjet printing technology. In 30 years, this technology has advanced enormously, giving an even wider distinction between Giclee reproductions and digital prints. However, we still use the word ‘print’ so that we are easily understood.

Fine Art Giclee Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your reproduction and read our blog article “Caring for your Fine Art” for information on ensuring your artwork still looks amazing for 3 – 4 generations.
