ST. ANTHONY’S JOY
Bronze, 96’’ x 44’’ x 38.5’’

I created this sculpture for Saint Anthony’s School and Parish in Casper, Wyoming. When I researched the artists that had depicted St. Anthony in the past, they always portrayed him holding baby Jesus, the bible, and white lilies in his arms. I wanted my interpretation of St. Anthony with the Christ-child to reflect one of the simple pleasures in life that I have shared with my children. Nothing is more heartwarming than watching a smile grow into an expression of pure joy as a child is tossed into the air. St. Anthony, the patron saint for lost articles, is credited with many miracles involving lost people, lost things, and even lost spiritual goods.
