Description

Cast bronze. The work portrays Jesus riding a the donkey. His right arm is raised and his first two fingers and thumb are extended as a sign of benediction. The sculpture is representative of Jesus making his journey into Jerusalem a week before he was crucified. Umlauf sculpted the figures directly in plaster, rather than clay, to reduce steps in the casting process.
