Originally designed for the pope's visit to St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco in 1986, this monumental bronze is sited in Helena, Montana. With face hidden, a powerful and vulnerable figure bends over us, waiting in infinite patience and tenderness for us to discover and appreciate the gifts that are showered upon us to use or discard as we will. Though something in the long droop of splashing hair hints of ageless sorrow, still there is a trusting innocence in the figure; perhaps a willingness to be betrayed by frightened humans, again. The powerful, giving hand lies open and relaxed, in utter trust that we human creatures will, in our own time, accept and honor the gift. And then go and do likewise.
