I carve the original in clay and cast the statues by hand in our workshop in Natchez, Mississippi. Statues come boxed, can go outside, come with a history card, and can stand or hang. The card states the following:

Monica was the mother of St. Augustine. Although Augustine was one of the most influential thinkers in all of Christian history, he devoted much of his early life to sensuality: he, for instance, lived for years with a woman out of wedlock and had a child by her. Throughout the years of her son’s experiments with pleasure and non-Christian religions, Monica patiently and persistently poured out a string of prayers and tears. Soon after Augustine converted to Christianity in 387, Monica died in his presence. After her death, Augustine wrote of her: “This was the mother, now dead and hidden awhile from my sight, who had wept over me for many years so that I might live.” In this small image, Monica is shown holding a cup, the cup of tears she wept for her son, now a saint like her. The piece was handmade by Hank Schlau.

Dimensions: 6 (h) x 1.5 (w) x 1 (d) inches
