Means of Grace
2004
11' x 17' x 10"

This sculpture represents the Means of Grace. In the Christian faith the Sacraments of Communion and Baptism and the Word of God are ways in which His grace is revealed to man. Symbolically, the head and body of Christ also depict the cup and wafer for Communion. The simplified waves and open book represent Baptism and the Bible respectively.
