Ceramic Heart; Wood Box; Stone heart (volcanic rock: pumice)
Based upon the Scripture: I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:25-26
Sin has hardened our hearts, and we often give ourselves to other gods. The Spirit of God seeks to soften our fossilized hearts, and promises to transplant the living, beating heart of Jesus into our chests. This piece uses a type of natural stone, a volcanic rock called pumice. I am attempting to visually draw a sharp contrast between hardened stone and pulsating, beating life.
