This limited-edition sculpture (edition 11/33) is considered a significant work of modern religious art. Created by renowned artist Gilbert Jerome “Gib” Singleton (1935–2014), this piece is the sixth station in his Stations of the Cross, a collection of works that reinterpret a tradition within the Catholic Church commemorating fourteen events from the last hours of Jesus’s life. This piece depicts Veronica’s veil draped around the cross like a banner while an exhausted Jesus rests upon a rock.

Singleton’s style draws upon his interest in Western bronze sculpture but is more abstract in its figural representation. This approach was identified by Singleton as a form of emotional realism, and through it he hoped to create a spiritual and emotional connection to the soul.

Designed and created in 2009 by Gilbert Jerome “Gib” Singleton in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Sold in 2011 by C. Anthony Gallery in Beaver Creek, Colorado to the Hutchison Family Foundation in Winter Spring, Florida;[1] Donated in 2017 to Museum of the Bible, Washington, DC.

Notes: [1] C. Anthony Gallery is the exclusive publisher of all Singleton’s art.
