Title:Jacob's Dream

The sculptor is a professor at Abilene Christian University; several students were used in the creation and production of this sculpture. It stands 34 feet tall and weighs over 7000 pounds. " The sculpture is hard to describe to those who haven't seen the design, Maxwell said, but he suggested for one to imagine Stonehenge, then throw in angels ascending and descending a ladder and picture an ancient ruin."The idea is to suggest history and spirituality in the space," he said.The stones with scriptures engraved on them will be carefully placed so as people move around the piece, they can read the scriptures while viewing the art." -- from media.www.acuoptimist.com
