In March we celebrate the feast of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel, as a messenger of God, came to Mary and told her she was to be the Mother of Jesus. Many images have been created of this scene over the years.
When I read somewhere that cranes are considered messengers of the gods, I pictured the scene filled with cranes. I created this new carving for my upcoming exhibit “With Passion” at St Mary’s Bascilica in Minneapolis, MN, in September and October of this year. The piece is one of my interpretation of the celebration of Annunciation.
