This high relief sculpture was a collaborative work commissioned to my instructor, Cody Swanson, at the Sacred Art School in Florence, Italy. He created a sketch and I took his drawing and sculpted it into relief, to the point of the picture on the right. At that point in the project I flew back to the States for Christmas and it was picked up and brought to completion by Fernando Cidoncha and Fabio Deiana, who together finished the background and cast it in plaster as seen above. The final work was translated into alabaster and installed in a church in Madrid, Spain.
It was an honor to be part of bringing this altar piece to life as The Visitation is one of my favorite scenes in scripture, found in Luke 1:39-56.
"Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb...Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled."
