Lazarus

lazarus.jpg (18558 bytes)

    "Lazarus, come forth!"  And he that was dead came forth, bound in graveclothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin.  "I am the ressurection, and the life; he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live."

St. John tells the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

This sculpture was also raised from the dead.   It was originally to be used as the crucified figure in my "Reach out and Touch Faith" sculpture, but I ran into problems with casting the torso and arms.  Rather than just  tossing it out, it was re-born in this fashion, much the same as "Scar Tissue" was created when I had miscast "Fame".
