ST. PIO - BRONZED MINI-SCULPTURE
In this very unique sculpture by Christian Master Sculptor, Timothy P. Schmalz, Padre Pio is seated on one side of the Crucifix, which also serves as a confessional, with his hand raised in absolution. On the penitent's side of the confessional screen is the image of Jesus with His pierced hand, in the place of Padre Pio's, raised in absolution. It is a striking depiction of the reality of Christ's redeeming power in the presence of the priest during the sacrament of reconciliation. Made of a resin-stone mix and painted with a bronze finish, this statue measures 6 3/4" W x 14" H x 4 3/4" D.
