Saint Clare

I portray the Poor Clare in a moment of prayer as she listens to the divine's will.  This is at the moment that she decides to renounce worldly desires to follow God and the example of Saint Francis of Assisi.  The sculpture depicts Saint Clare stands yearning toward God.  One hand opens to receive the divine's grace, and the other touches her heart as a sign of humility.  After all, her gesture carries the movement of spiritual desire as she prepares to devote her entire life to the sacred call.
