Rescue of the Lost Lamb
Rescue of the Lost Lamb is among the most beloved of Minerva Teichert art. It depicts the biblical parable of the lost lamb. "What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost." (Luke 15:4-6).
