Description

This bas-relief depicts Christ in the center, with his arms halfway raised and palms facing outward. He appears to be floating above the ground between two wheat strands, and a halo is above his head. Below him lay two cherubs looking upward at him with their hands clasped together. On either side of Jesus stands an angel and a child, all four of whom have haloes. Seven cherubs with trumpets form a half-circle to the side and above Jesus. The title is a reference to Matthew 11:28, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

This piece is the 1/4 size model for the central panel above the entrance doors to Christ Episcopal Church in San Antonio.
