The most beautiful work of art I've ever seen!

Beautiful piece of art! Will definitely give ma a visual to focus on during my daily examen!

I have purchased both the 8.5” and 13” versions of the statue, and couldn’t be more pleased with them. They are exquisitely done, and everyone I show them to are most impressed. I would have paid an even higher price for them. I highly recommend them.

It’s a stunning piece that captures my gaze and inspires my personal practice of the Ignatian Examen. I will keep this smaller size version in my home, and ordered the larger version for my office where I do an Ignatian ministry, with particular attention to the Ignatian Examen.

First shipment was damaged, but the replacement was quickly provided. It is a beautiful sculpture portraying St. Ignatius Loyola in the throes of the “Examen,” a cornerstone of Jesuit essence, the three-times-daily reflection on one’s own “nonnegotiables,” the three or four principles by which one’s life is defined, and how faithful one has been to them. This “look in the mirror” is brilliantly portrayed in a face-to-face meeting of Ignio and his self.
