Product Description

.I design, carve, and cast the pieces myself: they're wholly original. I cast them in modified gypsum (a very strong building material) with bronze powder. After the pieces cure, we glaze and seal them. The pieces come boxed, can stand or hang (there's a hook on the back), and can go outside. Each piece comes with a history card stating: Of the original twelve apostles, St. Jude is the one most commonly invoked in prayer. Jude is cited only once in the Gospels and is probably the author of the Letter of Jude, the shortest book in the New Testament. Robert Ellsberg has written that Jude may have become the patron of those in difficult times because of "the similarity of his name to that of Judas Iscariot. For a long time this evidently inhibited supplicants from invoking the name of St. Jude. It might be supposed that this had the effect of storing up a good deal of efficacious power." Jude has evoked considerable attention and even amusement over the years because of his association with "lost causes," but there is, as millions know, a far more serious side to his patronage: Jude's association with healing and bringing comfort to those in any type of difficult situation is one of the reasons so many hospitals and clinics have been named after him and why shrines to him are filled with symbols of his healing power of the body, mind, and spirit. In early Christian sculpture, Jude was often, as here, depicted with a boat because he was one of the first Christian missionaries and would have traveled extensively by ship. This piece was handmade by Hank Schlau and handpainted by Karen Schlau.
