“O Sapientia…”O Wisdom, you came forth from the mouth of the Most High and, reaching from beginning to end, you ordered all things mightily and sweetly.  Come, and teach us the way of prudence.

Artist’s Comment: 
I chose the image of a bearded man to symbolize the concept of wisdom. Wisdom reached back to the beginning. The random pieces of wood burl surrounding Wisdom reflect the concept of order created from the original chaos. The three stones in the top piece show the existence of the Trinity from eternity.

Reflection:
Sirach 24:3:  “From the mouth of the Most High I came forth, and like mist covered the earth”.

Wisdom 8:1: “She reaches from end to end mightily and governs all things well”.
