William,

I have to say this is indeed marvelous work. You have captured everything I could possibly think Jesus was going through. Anguish, sorrow, serenity. Its all there.
I have bought 2 of these statues, one for my house and one for my parents. Your talent is incredible.
Thank you.

Tom

I have just received my statue in the mail and I cannot find the words to describe how powerful this piece is. It is more beautiful in person than in pictures.

The rough hewn quality of the work depicts the torture and physical punishment inflicted on Christ and yet there is an amazing tranquility in Jesus' expression, a full acceptance of his decision. It is as if he is gazing up, basking in the warmth of the sun, of God's love.

The roughness of the piece is also fitting in that it is reminiscent of a carving, something that a carpenter's son would appreciate.

This is a must have for any art lovers collection whether they be religious or not.

William, amazing work!

Thank you.

Due to requests, I signed a very small number of these busts when I was in Florida recently to meet with my partner. If anyone wants a signed copy, please include a request when placing an order. There is no additional charge but we will only send these to customers who ask, so if a signed piece is what you want let us know. Once the signed editions are gone we will relay that information on the site.

Thanks as always for the great comments and the patronage.

A quick announcement for anyone who was considering picking up one of these statues, especially for Christmas-

We find ourselves extremely low on inventory and our factory is not able to fill our next order until March or April of 2010. We have about 25 statues left that we will be able to sell this year, all ARTISAN (painted) Edition. The SCULPTOR Edition is temporarily out of stock.

Thanks.
