The Cathedral: Closer at Last #3

Yes, that is a heart sticking out of Jesus' chest. I am guessing that's a reference to the previous cathedral, known as Sacred Heart.

Jesus is looking older than 33 years here, Larry...is there a reason for this, too?
Larry Bliss: Not being Catholic, I am not sure... perhaps his face is meant to reflect his sorrows...

It was good to see the cathedral now complete having seen some of your images during the build. I thought Jesus was holding a flower at first.
Larry Bliss: That would be nice symbolism too...

He isn't bearded, I think that's unusual
Larry Bliss: That is odd, but I think it somehow enhances the image.

Yes, the sacred heart of Jesus. Tiff makes an interesting point, definitely a moustache.
Larry Bliss: There is sorrow in his face...
The heart is often show outside the body. I often judge statues by the hands and this one has excellent hands.
Larry Bliss: Indeed it does...
It is a fine statue Larry. Our local catholic church is called the sacred heart and St Catherine of Alexandria church
Larry Bliss: I am sure that statue will attract a lot of attention. It focuses the mind.

This is impressive too. I read the comments and also about the beard. Yes his face is with sorrow. Love the details.
Larry Bliss: It is a focal point on the church grounds.
It's this kind of "art" that puts me off religion, I'm afraid, Larry!
Larry Bliss: I respect your disagreement, Tom.
it's a wonderful statue and it is the cred Heart Of Jesus in my religion Larry....petersmile
Larry Bliss: I respect your agreement, Peter.

Larry Bliss: As always, Ayush, I thank you for your kind words.
