This one is hand carved

This is a hand carved piece, made in Poland, celebrating a millenium of Christianity in Poland. I met a lady once from Poland who explained to me that this region was know for it's wood carving. She had been involved with solidarily movement, and was explaining to me what it was like. The Pope's visit precipitated the notion to the people that they were many, and if they stuck together, they could change their country. This is what I think about when I look at this piece. That, and the profound sadness of Mary, and yet the profound love and hope.
