(John the Baptizer)
title, "Behold" comes from John's exclamation as he
first sets eyes on Jesus: "Behold the Lamb of God!"
In this moment, the entire prophetic tradition, and the purpose
of John's whole life are realized. In this sculpture, John's face
and figure radiate a quiet, eternal joy of recognition and fulfillment...
yet deep within his eyes is seen a realization of the Baptizer's
own end. This bronze piece is life-sized.
