"Piercing the Sun" is made from mahogany. It stands 20 inches tall, 14 inches wide including base and 12 inches deep. This is one of those pieces that sat on the bench, was worked when time allowed, and finally got finished after a period of 7 years. The title comes from a story of Sagitarius, the warrior, shooting an arrow at the sun symbolizing Pontius Pilot's soldiers piercing the side of Jesus on the cross.
