The Black King

Originally written in Catalan by Ponc Pons of Minorca, Spain, The Black King, was the inspiration for this painting.  King Balthazar must travel far to join the other Magi in their search for the Christ Child.  Following the guiding star with his servant Said, he encounters hostile villagers and performs miracles along the way.  The Black King is a timeless tale of faith and charity in the face of intolerance and suffering.  In his dedication, Mr. Pons writes, "With good will and forgiveness, every day will be Christmas."  The Black King was translated into English by Clyde Moneyhun and illustrated by Cynthia Farrell Johnson.
