I think EMBRACE is a good name for this sculpture which I created in memory of my wifes sister which recently passed away .
While visiting with my wifes family and making funeral arrangements I tried to occupy my mind with thoughts of the time that lay before us all and what I could create as a memory to her life for her children and grandchildren .
When we returned home and I entered my shop it all came to me just like it was meant to be , there where four sets of arches that I had made a while ago but could not come up with a design to complete them and I simply added a walnut cross and stone base to complete the sculpture .
They will be sent to our niece and nephew to be placed in a special place in their home .

Sorry for not being online lately but the circumstances did not seem right nor did I feel like spending time in the shop although I found that it is good therapy in the last couple of days as life must go on .


Classy work as always Klaus. My condolences about your sister in law’s passing.

Such a beautiful sculpture. I am making my 3rd copy of your creation. I am going to give it to my pastor. It represents to me several things (A man and a Woman living a Christ Centered life)( The Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) (The redemptive work of Christ and his love by His dying on the cross)
