A FEW WORDS FROM THE ARTIST:   "A few years back I saw a Christ sculpture in an antique store in Iceland I feel in love with. "It's not for sale" the salesman told me. "I can't replace it. The original edition is sold out". I was so disappointed, I really wanted that sculpture. As I walked out I decided I'd just have to sculpt one myself one day, hopefully just as beautiful. This was 2001, the year before I became a sculptor! Years later I was approached by a collector to sculpt a piece for a church. Now is the time to sculpt Christ I thought to myself. It took me nine months to complete, like giving birth! For me it is a thank you for the talent I was given. I studied countless artworks of Christ through the ages and decided to create emotion and movement with the help of the drapery and his prayer shawl being energetically tossed around by the wind. Yet he is still amidst it all. He is reaching out to you and at the same time pointing to God above, from Him to you, from above to below. The base has a feel of waves of water, referring to the moment when Christ walked on water. The base is adorned with 12 medallions symbolizing the 12 disciples. It is my hope that this sculpture will be placed in churches and private homes alike."    Vala Ola
