Sculptures of Christ

The St. George Visitors Center has on display an amazing sculpture display of various scenes from the Bible of Christ. The artist is a woman, Angela Johnson, from Arizona, who took up sculpting just 10 years ago. Her artwork is amazing. Click on her name to go to her website where you can view these pieces, or if you click on the visitors center you can see the pieces that are on display here. Seeing them on the internet is nothing compared with seeing them in person. The piece titled "Come Unto Me" is a life size sculpture of Christ, akin to the Christus, and when I stood in front of it and looked up into His eyes it was like I was truly looking into Christ's eyes - they were kind and loving and healing.
