|Christ on the Ass|
Maquette III for The Entry into Jerusalem, 1954
Christ rides on the ass, his arms by his side, with out-turned thumbs as if in acceptance of what is ahead. The ass has its ears back, clearly troubled by what it senses.
Bronze with green patina, edition 6/6, height 15.75 ins. excluding marble base. Signed and numbered on the base, "David Wynne 6/6"
This is a maquette for The Entry into Jerusalem of 1954 which is 36 ins. high.
While David Wynne’s secular sculpture is elegant, decorative and characterised by its vitality, his religious work is deeply spiritual and probably, as yet, insufficiently appreciated. This is a powerful and moving work.
