Progress – Abraham and Isaac

[catlist id=”18-19-1-20″]The last piece to complete the Hebrew 11 series.  I have chosen the story of the sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis 22 to represent Abraham.  This story is an allegorical representation of the Passion of Christ.

I love the woodcut pictured below.  It is very intimate  but does not lend itself well to being created in a large relief carving.  The angels wings would be to wide and bulky for the space that the sculpture will live.  I have my ideas on how to keep the tension and intimacy of this woodcut but make the sculpture more compact.
