Homeless Jesus

A sculpture by Timothy P. Schmalz, who writes about his sculptures on his web site, which are in various public places around the world.

Inspired by Matthew: 25, this sculpture is a representation that suggests Christ is with the most marginalized in our society. The Christ figure is shrouded in a blanket the only indication that it is Jesus is the visible wounds on the feet. The life-size version of the work has enough room that someone is able to sit on the bench.
