The famous artist, Timothy Schmalz, known for his sculpture of the Homeless Jesus and Angels Unawares at the Vatican and around the world announces some exciting new works. For over 25 years, Timothy has been sculpting large scale sculptures. He says of himself: "I am devoted to creating artwork that glorifies Christ. The reason for this devotion, apart from my Christian beliefs, is that an artist needs an epic subject to create epic art. I describe my sculptures as being visual prayers."
