Glad your my neighbor on STJ :) Your statue took my breathe away, I think I would be a bit intimidated if He was standing in my kitchen. Have a great day, Jackie

Does the statue of Jesus startle you when you walk into the kitchen. How I would love to have the statue in my kitchen. Can't wait to see after!

The statue of Jesus is gorgeous, and how wonderful of you to take the project on. Love your STJ pieces this month Deb, and look forward to seeing your upcoming work.

Oh my GOSH! I have worked on many of these for a huge collector in Charlotte! I also completely renovated a life size Jesus! I would love to talk with you about it! I adore santos figures! The one I worked on was very old. The collector, Dr. Robicsek, has an inner museum full of centuries old Catholic statuaries as well as ancient ancient South American Indian pottery. I had to re build the base, sand and fill, and re paint the life size one. I have re sculpted/carved fingers and hands too!

That Jesus in my kitchen reminds me of my nephews. Whenever they see the priest of their local parrish out and about, they say there's Jesus again. Blessings!
