Art and Beauty Tuesday--Don Saco
It is 19 inches high and done in bronze.
I love the amazing movement that he gets in this piece. The Angel seems to be suspended in mid-air--it is easy to forget he is attached to Jacob's arms.
I also love the way Jacob is caught off-balance by his wrestling. Faith is not a carefree thing to navigate and we all have our periods of wrestling with God--asking questions--and feeling off-balance. Saco captures this feeling perfectly in this sculpture.
