The Christ-Apollo Lives

Davis sent this picture of a statue of a very young beardless Christ made by the late Walter Erlebacher in Philadelphia in the 1970s. I never knew Walter, but I studied drawing with his widow, Martha Erlebacher, herself an accomplished artist.
I remember seeing pictures of this statue when it was new. I had since forgotten about it, and now, I will have to make a trip to Philly to see the original. From the pictures, it looks very impressive.

Thanks Davis, for reminding me of this wonderful work.
