The Angel Gabriel
In my Annunciation the angel Gabriel stands on a rotting stump which has a living branch growing out of it showing hope and prosperity. The stump is the dead stump of Jesse, David's father, whose lineage of kings, after they are long dead, will yield a new King born to them Jesus, the son of David. You may notice I have made this branch a Sugar Maple tree -- the state tree of West Virginia where this work is placed. Installation at Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral, Charleston. Bronze, 98 inches in height.
