This wonderful sculpture of the Blessing Jesus will grace your home or garden. Jesus bears the sacred stigmata and the sacred heart. Cast in quality bonded Carrara Marble imported from Italy and finished in a bronze patina, it is also available in carrara white. The heart is the symbol for true love, charity, understanding, and piety; for happiness and joy as well as sorrow. It is recognized as the key organ of the human body, one that coordinates the intellect with the emotions. The emblem for devotions to the Sacred heart is a flaming heart, surmounted by a Cross and enclosed in the Crown of Thorns. As an attribute, the flaming heart generally suggests religious fervor, the pierced heart contrition and repentance.
