This sculpture was created from 16 gauge sheets
of bronze. Each of the 26 sections was hand cut, shaped and colored,
then mounted to the steel doors. Worshipers entering Resurrection
Chapel move symbolically through life's spiritual journey of Baptism,
Eucharist, death and the after life.* The Doors of Eternal
Life, adorned with Jonson's beautiful sculpture of a rising
sun, are opened only at funerals to walk a sister's casket through
to the convent cemetery.
