LITURGICAL SCULPTURE

The Black Madonna is a three-foot bronze of the Virgin Mary with the Christ child, commissioned by Holy Cross Church in Austin, Texas.
Welcoming Christ was commissioned by Saint Mary Our Lady of the Lake Church at Lago Vista, Texas. The church wanted a 1.5 scale bronze that would be big enough to be seen from the approach road.
Mary and Jesus sculpture was first commissioned for the new Amarillo Cathedral which, at the time, was one of the first North American Catholic churches to be built following the Second Ecumenical Council guidelines calling for changes in how churches were built and how they celebrated the Holy Mass.   More information and examples of liturgical sculptures by Thomas Studio & Foundry
