St Christopher Statue

This warm, gentle sculpture conveys a strong sense of peace and is small enough to sit on a table-top or shelf.
I chose to focus on the human aspect of this traditional subject – the Christ figure could almost be a small child being carried home from the park, a ball in his hand not the world. With his right hand he steadies himself, and plays with Christopher’s nape.
Details have been pared down so that form and line emphasise the close connection between the two figures.
