VISIT THE LORD IN YOUR HOTTEST DRESS
A Major Visitor Attraction of the Smokies
In the beautiful Fountain Garden is located a most unusual and mystifying feature in the form of an heroic face of Our Lord sculptured in a six-ton block of Carrara marble in such a manner that the entire face seems actually to turn in any direction taken by the spectator moving in front of it.
HOOKED ON JESUS
CANADA’S ‘Artist in Wool’
Miss Elizabeth LeFort’s supreme artistry with a hook and yarn was discovered in 1954. Today her fine tapestry pictures and portraits are known around the world.
"THE CHRISTIAN HOPE"
The Christian Hope: “Dear God, please let the world end OUR WAY.”
In this painting the artist has caught the symbolism of Paul, as he describes an event which will precede the final consummation. It is the coming of Christ for his church. In this picture the artist has set forth in vivid fashion the Christian hope of the Lord’s return. We see the Lord breaking through from the spiritual world to the physical one.
Many extraordinary things take place at this time throughout the world. The artist has captured both material and spiritual incidents as they happen simultaneously.
Oh, and Happy WINTER SOLSTICE!
And Happy Beginning of a New World!
JESUS ASCENDS to the ANGEL HAIR CLOUD HEAVEN
Not until after His death and Resurrection did Christ’s life reveal its true purpose. Then these words “because I live, ye shall live also” took on their full significance. He ascended into Heaven forty days after his resurrection. Sculptress, Leone Chaney presents, “KING OF KINGS” at Sunken Garden, St. Petersburg, Florida.
JESUS CHRIST: DESERT VERSION
DESERT CHRIST SHRINE
YUCCA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
This beautiful group of sculptured biblical characters is one of the spectacular attractions of the high desert. Here pictured is Antone Martin, a retired pattern maker who has with limited funds erected single handed this great monument to religious unity and world peace.
The verse under the image:
Will man forge out his destiny
In halls where reason reigns?
Will he forge the infamy
Of sordid, petty gains?
Can we shout “Peace” with every breath
Make all decisions wise?
Or will the Atom’s Plume of Death
O’er all the cities rise?
