“I died, and I went to heaven. And then I saw the world. I saw myself stumbling drunk on the earth,” said Monzon. In a deeply religious experience, Monzon said she pleaded with God to give her another chance. “When I die, I want to be remembered that I did something good for the people, something good for the world. I don’t want to die like this — desperate,” Monzon prayed. After that, she was able to kick her addictions and begin rebuilding her life. She started by moving into the Village of Hope at the Poverello House. She then enrolled at Fresno City College before transferring to Fresno State to get her bachelor’s degree in art, followed by her Master of Art in December 2019. “Ms. Monzon’s art communicates a message of hope to the downtrodden, the addicts, the women fleeing abusers, their children,” said Dr. Honora Chapman, interim dean, College of Arts and Humanities. “No wonder then, that her picture hangs at Poverello House and that she was involved in celebrating founder Papa Mike’s life after he passed away: she is a part of the fabric of this city as a volunteer and an artist — a true citizen of our community.” When I was dead in heaven a voice told me to gind a guide and get away from the pull of the dark abyss and find a guide or I die forever. I found Christ. I called on God and he came near but I could not see his face the ray of light coming from his hand was too brighr. I woke up nd strted building Archangels. Everytime zi made a voil zi thought it wad a ray of light from God"s hand and I pray Over and over I built praying to the zLight of the beam. In the end I called them tthe four directiond of the Cardinal Cross of Heaven becausie I am in Academia studying Master in Arts but to me they are the 4 Archangels of the Absolute God the Father I am a student who just graduated with an MA in Arts emphasis in Sculpturewho is seeking the opportunity to share my God-inspired Archangels of Light inspired by the Light of God as his Word of Salvation. My art is a message of forgiveness through prayer, love, and service. The lord is magnified by those who serve him. He gives us the spirit of thanksgiving to share with others to establish his kingdom of Light and Mercy through redemption by the new Covenant of his blood. My art transcends the sacrifices in native culture in America because of the Blood of the Lamb was shed to atone for human sacrifices in worship.

Angel Gabriel Big Clay Sculpture in Mayan CHAAK God of the Living Waters of Life



Artist Statement

The Light of God guided me every time I got lost. I visualized the beam coming from he who holds the universe while I made coils. I remembered when he gave me the rays from his hand (in my dream vision). The light, guided by His Holy Spirit, told me what I should do, guided me intuitively, The coils are thunders, representing the light of God that comes from heaven to bring rain to feed the people, and each loop is prayer because I prayed for the world while I coiled the clay.
I remain silent awe to what the creator has made through my hands. All praise be to God’s light.
In Mayan Culture, Animals are helpers. Guides and friends. My cat Gracie is my friend. Some people do not believe in Archangels, and I do. I think there are Four that travel with God in His aspect of Absolute.
In the North is angel Michael, he rules wisdom. In the East is Uriel. He is Intuition. In the South, there is Angel Gabriel. He orders a matter of facts in worldly life; in the West is Raphael for courage.
Light manifested to uphold view in this world because God knew we do not fight flesh and blood, but the wickedness in heavenly places that would come down soon after I finished in October in January I saw the darkness come down. In a dream. It was Pandemia.
The hand that faces upwards holds “The Living Water of Life,” and the hand that faces down keeps the waters from caves down, representing the waters of inequity (from the principalities of darkness in heavenly places.)
My Sculptures have rock textures, because Rocks are sacred in the Bible, as symbols. (refer to face Photo)
Psalm 18:2
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Psalm 144:1
Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;
Matthew 16:18
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
1 Samuel 2:2
“There is none holy like the Lord; there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.

How it fits into contest

The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power.
I had to be strong because I had a car accident that made me disabled to push the statue, which was eight hundred and fifty pounds of Clay. I had to rely on God’s mighty power because the Doctor at Community Hospital said I could not lift or push more than 29=0 pounds. I had to break the statue which was standing and build it sitting down and make it half the weight.

11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. I had to wear the helmet of God and take a stand against the devil schemes because I lost my Financial help to finish the work and to finish school.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms. I felt like everything was against me, and it was tough to finish the semester. I had to Graduate by April 2019 in February, and I was not able to do it physically, so I dropped out of school. I enrolled back in August and finished the work by October when I had my Final Show.

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. I was able to stand and finished my Archangel, but I had to put on the armor of God because I had many difficulties building the peace.

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of Righteousness in place. I believed my work was an actual duty given to me by the Divine, and I thought I had to finish the Archangels so that Righteousness could be established in y
this earthly realm. I truly believed this

15 With your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. After all, it brought me peace. I was in the Gospel of Peace m fulfilling and offering I made to God. It was my mission.

16 Besides all this, I took the shield of Faith, where you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I put on the protection of Faith’s shield every day, and I was ready to work on my sculpture because I was ready.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. When God gave me the beam to come back to live, I could hear His words as Sword in the Spirit that crossed my heart guided me to fight to create

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
I built many coils of Clay. In each one, I sent one Prayer and a request to the Almighty, for all people. He answered my prayers to lay the reels, which I believed were light beams from God’s hands.
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel. The Prayer for myself was that God would bless my endeavor.
