13 – Titles of Christ

13th Bible Stick – Titles of Christ

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This stick has twenty-two different titles of Christ.  I wanted it to look like a cluster of entangled vines, twisted together to hold the different titles.  There is no particular order to the titles.  I did lead off with “I Am”, because it shows connection with God.  Towards the end of the stick, you will find “Amen”.  Listed below are the titles I chose, the Bible passage where it can be found, and the image I used to illustrate that title.

Most of the images used to illustrated each title are simple and self-explanatory.  But a few of the images are fun or need a little explanation.  For the Rock, I decided to use a guitar.  The Bread of Life has a chunk removed, to look like someone took a bite out of it.  For the Prince of Peace, I used two fingers holding up the peace sign.  This stick is carved out of mahogany.  I worked on it for three years.  If I had to guess, maybe 200 hours of carving.  I finished it in February 2011.

If you click on the pictures below, you will see the progress of this stick.
