As people look at this sculpture, “Come Unto Me” I want them to know that they are looking at a miracle. The artistic director from the Newport Temple Open House called me looking for a life-size statue of Jesus for the centerpiece of the hosting center.
I had just started a life size stature of Jesus and he needed the completed sculpture in five weeks. To sculpt that size would normally take four to six months.
More than anything, I wanted to create a depiction of Jesus that was so filled with divine strength, love, compassion and mercy that all who looked into His eyes would feel His love.
