Description

Cast bronze. The figure is a portrayal of John the Baptist, who appears to be in mid stride. He is dressed in a long robe and animal hide cloak. His left arm is held downward across his midsection, and his right arm is held upward across his chest. John's upward pointing right forefinger refers to the coming of Christ. Umlauf emphasized John's ascetic appearance following his years spent alone in the wilderness by making his face haggard and long hair disheveled.
