(The Holy Phoenix)

 

Created in honor of the canonization of Padre Pio, this sculpture is a reminder that the victims of 9/11 were not alone on their journey into everlasting life. At the center of the composition, Padre Pio, sculpted in the shape of the shape of the Eternal Flame, raises the Twin Towers out of the chaos, death and destruction into the peace and tranquility of eternal life. In the lower part of the sculpture, the New York City skyline represents the potential for the humanity to be good, productive and creative. Contrasting the skyline are the tumultuous clouds, symbols of mankind's capacity for evil and sin. Out of the ash and smoke of Ground Zero, Padre Pio rises as the Holy Phoenix, giving new life to the towers.

Commissioned by Hon. Attilio J. Paglia, this piece was donated to Padre Pio's Holy Shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy.

Bronze. 14"Wx18"H
