The first thing the lamb represents is the sacrifice Hassan made.

In the beginning of the The Scarlet Ibis, the narrator is upset that his brother is abnormal; also, the narrator feels embarrassed.

“Never that which is shall die.” This quote appears in the beginning of The Wars quoted by Euripes. This phrase means that once something exists, it never really dies. In the novel by Timothy Findley, the quote strongly relates to the main character Robert.

From beginning to end, the son calls his father “Baba” to show his affection and admiration. Despite the father’s inability to come up with a new story, the son still looks up to him. This affectionate term also contrasts with the father’s vision of the “boy packing his shirts [and] looking for his keys,” which accentuates the undying love between the father and son (15 & 16) . The father’s emotional “screams” also emphasize his fear of disappointing the son he loves so much (17). Despite the father’s agonizing visions, the son remains patient and continues to ask for a story, and their relationship remains “emotional” and “earthly”--nothing has changed (20-21).

Even though the Good Shepherd carries the lamb draped over his shoulders instead of in front of him, as in the Picasso, the similarity of subjects is evident. The Man with a Lamb has a context of sacrifice and suffering that takes on a heightened significance as it was created during the anguished years of the Second World War when everyone realized how near death and ruin was. Likely, the Good Shepherd has been referred to Jesus Christ in the bible, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” (NIV, John 10:11). Jesus was sacrificial for the sake of his people.
The shepherd is the provider and the protector of his sheep. That is why King James sees the lord as his shepherd/protector. All of the sheep become helpless without their shepherd (lord).
