That is San Luís, Colorado. The sculptor is Huberto Maestas.
I've hiked all throughout that area. Then again, I suppose this is another topic for travel. LOL!! Speaking of which, I have seen some REALLY ugly representations of Christ in my day. These were done in the late '80s / early '90s if I recall. Interesting as when you see them during Lent, they cover the top one (Crucifixion) only to uncover it on Easter Sunday.
Now want to see some REALLY ugly Christ statues....go to Brazil, Spain, Portugal. 1500s. Nothing worse and I have the pictures to prove it. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Budred from Sunday, April 25, 2010 6:50:44 PM)
I forget the name but the statues were made by an artist from the area of the church.
Phenomenal detail. They looked so life like. This church is in Southern Colorado. Any
one here from that area that recognizes this church feel free to give details. I know each
easter thousands of people visit it. I wish I had more pics of the church itself.
