Stations of the Cross

The process for creating monumental sculptures included creative, technical and industrial skills. This sequence shows the process from  first sketches and models to final cast bronze sculptures.

Tour all 14 Stations of the Cross


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.

Cloisters on the Platte was a collaborative project which also included:

Dee Clements

The Cloisters on the Platte monastery and retreat facility is the vision of entrepreneur and philanthropist, Joe Ricketts, founder of the Cloisters on the Platte Foundation. Set on a beautiful natural expanse along the Platte River in Nebraska, the destination opened in July of 2018, and offers a silent retreat experience in the Jesuit tradition.
