Note I purchased these images and others by French artist Gustave Dore from Dreamstime.com for use in my 2014 series of Lenten Blog posts, The images are copyrighted by © Nicku | Dreamstime.com. Quoting from the Dreamstime.com site, the images are from "The Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments books collection published in 1885, Stuttgart-Germany. Drawings by Gustave Dore". Most copyrighted materials are valid for the life of the author + 50 to 70 years depending on the country. Since Dore lived from 1832-1883, seventy years beyond 1883 was 1953. Thus the copyright has expired for this 1885 publication and entered "public domain". "Nicku" has scanned (or photographed etc.) the images and submitted them to Dreamstime.com for sale as digital media. The images were originally black and white but I have used editing software to enhanced the images and add the colored borders.
