A hooded figure sitting cross-legged, gesturing to an empty offering bowl. There is a nail mark in the gesturing hand, revealing the figure to be Jesus in the guise of a homeless person. The inscription reads: "Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Les aseguro que todo lo que hiciste por unos de mis hermanos, aun a los más pequeños, lo hiciste por mi. Matthew 25:40. Hank & Barb Waters. Sculptor: Timothy Schmalz"
