Jesus" in Buffalo
Via de' Puccio, Florence, Italy
Sculptor: Timothy C. Schmalz
Timothy C. Schmalz, "Homeless Jesus"
(online March 2020)
The “Homeless Jesus” sculpture is a visual representation of Matthew 25. The sculpture suggests that Christ is with the most marginalized in our society. The Christ figure is shrouded in a blanket with His face covered with the only indication that the figure is Jesus being the visible wounds on the feet. The life-size version of the work provides enough room for someone to sit on the bench and is cast in bronze metal measuring 36”H x 84”L x 24”D."
Site includes photos of Pope Francis blessing one of the statues. Site also includes photos of a number of "Homeless Jesus" statues around the world.
Note stigmata, the only identifiable feature that indicates that is a depiction of Jesus
