Jesus over Chicago


One of the main features of the Sky Chapel is this woodwork carving of Jesus weeping over the city of Chicago. The whole work was carved from a single piece of wood. There is another work by the same artist in the ground floor chapel of Jesus weeping over Jerusalem, but I think the Chicago work is more special. Photo taken in August 2012.

  1. That is a very dramatic piece of art! Is this what they call a diorama?

  2. Love the detail on the carvings. Is that wood or gold?
