Grotto Statue



This bronze statue rests in the alcove where the grotto used to be. It is doubtful whether it ever was placed inside the grotto, and the main statue of the Pieta appears in a photograph of the grotto itself. There was a small alcove in the back of the grotto, lit only by stained glass in the roof of the grotto back room. My recollection is that it was a scene of the Agony in the Garden, with a suffering Christ being consoled by an angel.
