Eichinger Sculpture Studio and four other teams of master sculptors created the grandest example of the Stations of the Cross ever seen.

 

A total of 58 sculpted characters were created for 14 stations of the cross. The monumental bronze figures stand 7’ tall. Each was rendered in clay and cast in bronze to tell the story of the crucifixion of Christ.
