This statue is the depiction of Jesus’ mother holding her son after he came down from his Crucifixion. This particular statue was displayed at St. John Cantius Church in Chicago, IL. It is a very beautiful church and they have many more statues, other forms of art, and the church has been redone. But this depiction is so full of emotion and detail that it’s worth displaying on Ash Wednesday.
Technical stuff: Sony NEX-7 ISO 1600, 55mm, f/5.6, 1/15 sec. The statue allowed me to get up close and personal. It was actually in the stair well and the light was pretty good without being overwhelming.
I hope you enjoy.
