Homeless Jesus

2021 / Timothy P. Schmalz / Cleveland

"The 'Homeless Jesus' sculpture is a visual representation of Matthew 25. The sculpture suggests that Christ is with the most marginalized in our society. The Christ figure is shrouded in a blanket with His face covered with the only indication that the figure is Jesus being the visible wounds on the feet. The life-size version of the work provides enough room for someone to sit on the bench and is cast in bronze metal measuring 36”H x 84”L x 24”D." [From sculptor's site]
