DescriptionCast by hand in the Wild Goose Studio, Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. This "Be Still and Know that I Am" wall plaque has an outer shell of pure bronze with an inner core of cast resin material for stability. Each Wild Goose piece is made entirely by hand, with no two being exactly alike.
Since ancient times, bronze has been a highly prized metal for the making of tools, jewelry and statues. It is an alloy of copper, which was first mined in Ireland over 4000 years ago. Left to weather, it will acquire a green patina; polished it will shine like gold.
"Be still then, and know that I am God." Stillness and meditation, an alternative to the confusion of everyday life, can be a starting point for prayer and knowledge of God.
Author Saul Bellow writes "Art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. A stillness which characterizes prayer, too, and the eye of the storm... an arrest in the midst of distraction." This 14" wall plaque provides a constant reminder, in the midst of our busy daily lives, that God IS.
Approximately 6 inches wide, 14 inches tall, and 1/2 inch thick at the point of greatest depth.
