Referenced from the scripture Mark 1: 16-18, Jorge Cocco Santangelo uses bold colors and abstract shapes to represent the Savior welcoming us to follow him.
Jorge Cocco said it best:
“A stripe of white light descends over the Savior symbolizing purity. The Lord comes into the scene framed by an inverted L, the symbol of righteousness, and his horizontally stretched arm, vigorously indicates the certainty of his election.
As an echo, the sail, and the ship form another L. The group of fishermen are in the middle of the balance between their earthly chores and the sacred calling; that is another reason why they are not completely identified, but are vaguely synthesized.”
The original Christus statue by Sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) was made of plaster in 1823 and was used to create the 11-foot marble version in 1839 that stands today in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Thorvaldsen spent 40 years in Rome. There he made a sepulchral monument for Pope Pius VII in St. Peter's Cathedral and numerous statues in the style of antiquity. While in Rome he also worked on another one of his masterpieces, “Christ and the 12 Apostles” which made him internationally known as the greatest sculptor of neo-classicism.
He returned to Copenhagen where he started and completed his greatest work, the Christus. After Thorvaldsen's death in 1844, the Christus was erected in the Copenhagen Cathedral. This marvelous work of inspired art has now been painstakingly created in exact detail as the original.
The statue is available in three sizes: 9-inch, 12-inch, and 19-inch.
