I want to direct you to Amazing Art, a blog post by Dave Weiss. It is indeed “amazing” and wait until you find out about the artist.

The picture you see here is only a small portion of the artwork, constructed of fiber, nails and plywood. You can see the entire piece by clicking the link above.

It was hung at a church that used the walls of its worship space as a gallery for the members’ artwork. What a great idea! We turned our lobby area into an art show one year for Easter. It was a wonderful way to challenge our artists to create around a theme (we used the theme “Redemption”), and a great way to display their work for our members to see!

Blessings of ARTistry, CREATivity & BEaUty, Jody

  1. Thanks for sharing this post today Jody. I continue to be blown away by this piece of art, done at this level by one so young. One of the things I want to see more people doing is posting about when young people do right, rather than all the emphasis when they go wrong.
