MADONNA & CHILD – Wood Sculpture by Paul T. Boecher, with poetry by Kathy Boecher
The sculpture was done several years back. The weathering of the wood has created a crack that goes down the side. How lovely that the sign of the cross has appeared within this piece.
A child just turned a woman, became the chosen one,
To hold the Son of God within – to be her firstborn Son.
But God had special plans for her and also for the world.
Through Mary’s contemplation of this exalted state,
She knew that God would come to earth to wipe away all hate.
To bring to man forgiveness from every single sin.
Fulfill His word of promise and make us clean within.
