Faith, Hope, and Love  8'- 3" high, To be cast in bronze

This sculpture recreates an arched "Needle," reminiscent of a once narrow gate into Jerusalem, prompting the parable "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." In the form of an eternal flame, a Judeo-Christian symbol of the presence of God, the "Needle" illustrates the lack of mortal baggage one can carry into heaven "within." The three figures of faith, hope, and love mirror the positive yearnings of the soul for those qualities that can lead our world in a brighter future through enlightenment and compassion.
