A commissioned piece to be featured in the owner’s new home, this piece was as much a spiritual exercise as a work of art. The art buyer wanted a depiction of Christ that demonstrated resolve and unswerving determination to fulfill God’s plan for complete sacrifice and fulfillment of prophesy. After many sketches, scale modeling and much discussion, we were able to capture the expression and impact that the sculpture should create. Three castings were made with no others to ever be produced in the future. Ironically, the number three symbolic of the Holy Trinity, this antiquity sculpture was truly a labor of love. The folks at Schaefer Bronze Art located in Arlington, Texas did a superb job and put in countless hours to refine and maintain the integrity of the original clay creation. The finished sculpture stands 24″ tall x 11″wide x 12″ deep including the stone pedestal design. This exercise has inspired me to create a series of painting that demonstrate a range and expression of God’s presence in our world. Many thanks to the Holt Lunsford family for their passion for Christ and the opportunity to create a very memorable sculpture.
