We are resizing the figures from The Stations of the Cross installed last year at the Cloisters On the Platte in Nebraska. The initial bronze sculptures of 58 figures were approximately 7’ tall. This new scaled series is ¼ life size, about 18” tall. We are also resizing the bronze figures to ½ life size, or about 36” tall. All are available for purchase. Contact us for details.
Station #6 depicts the reaction by one of the holy women of Jerusalem as she realizes the miracle in her hand.
As Jesus dragged the cross along the Via Dolorosa toward Calvary, Caesarea Philippi, offered her veil to wipe blood and sweat from His face. The image of His face remained on her veil.
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the vera icon, or the true image, became known as The Veronica. The woman was canonized as St. Veronica in 1885.
