Now its behind bullet proof glass because of some nut shooting it several years ago. I was surprised at how small it is. The rest of the basilica pales in comparison to its magnificent beauty.
Carol, I saw this in New York City in 1964 (I think). You could walk within 10 feet of it. It was the most beautiful sculpture I have EVER seen and it had a warm glow to it. It's a very fond memory of mine. Thank you for posting this!!
