Prodigal Son - Bronze sculpture by Barry Johnston

Prodigal Son

1986, Bronze, Life-size, Edition 7

The artist presents us with a life sized male figure, hand outstretched in with hope of mercy, yet clearly believing himself unworthy; the rebellious son returning to his loving father, as the story is told in the New Testament. As the parable continues the son, despite his wayward behavior, is welcomed with open arms and feasting when he returns home, poor and weary from his hedonistic exploits; his loving fatherís acceptance knows no bounds.
