If you have trouble with this, it is also available directly from YouTube. This is a website for Akiane. http://www.artakiane.com/I don't know if this edit of the interview will tell you, but in the full length version of the CNN interview, we learn that her mom was atheist before this happened to her daughter.
A quote about her painting of Jesus Christ:Jurij Sizenov Nikolaevich Shabolovka (Russian television and mega radio network)“We are all in total awe here, at this Russian television station! We compared Akianes's extraordinary painting Prince of Peace with the computerized image taken from the Shroud Of Turin, that was hanging in my office. To our complete shock and marvel we found virtually an exact match! It is a miracle and it must come from God! There are no words to describe how a little 8-year-old girl could portray such wisdom, compassion and love in the eyes she painted. The technical and emotional details along with the visual strength in her paintings are astounding and stupendous! When I have a difficult day, all I need to do is to look at her paintings. In her striking self-portrait the light literally comes forth from her…What a mission on earth she carries! Bravo!”
Another quote:KREM 2 News CBS - Spokane, Washington “Akiane is incredible! Her paintings are 30 times her size! So inspiring and incredible! What a talent!”
