 The Visitation, 54mm

Date: Nov 2014

This is a very special piece. My parents commissioned my good friend Andy Pieper to sculpt the figures (and chicken!) for me as a Christmas gift last year. It was a project I'd had in mind for several years, and it is a real joy to see it come to fruition.

The scene is from Luke, chapter 1. In this scene, Mary, just having conceived Jesus by the Holy Spirit, visits her cousin Elizabeth, who is pregnant in her old age. They greet each other with joy, then Mary sings her Magnificat, the first line of which is painted on the base.
