The Marriage at Cana (1618-20)

The Marriage at Cana (1618-20)
Quentin Varin 1570 – 1634
oil on canvas (310 × 259 cm) — 1618-20
John 2:8 - And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
The august buildings suggest that the celebration takes place in a palace. Jesus and Mary are seated facing each other. Jesus watches as the wine is being poured and points to the head waiter.

The miracle of the Wedding at Cana occurred when the hosts ran out of wine. Jesus had the empty jars filled with water, and had a servant bring a cup to the head waiter. When the head waiter tasted from the cup, he exclaimed that the best wine was served last.
