08 Jun Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Statue is Installed and Ready to Inspire Others
James Broom, President of Saint Patrick Academy in Portsmouth, New Hampshire inquired of artist Matt Glenn, CEO of Big Statues, to create this marvelous white marble statue of Mary holding baby Jesus. This sculpture, based on Italian design, was hand crafted from start to finish by Glenn with the help of Broom’s vision and inspiring ideas from others.
Saint Patrick Academy was planning on closing in June of 2017, but through hard work and a generous community, a new school was built. This statue was created for the grand opening celebration of the new catholic school, which happened to be the school’s 150th anniversary. Thousands gathered for the recent unveil of the statue on May 11, 2018.
Upon the installation of the statue, Broom said, “Matt Glenn produced a masterpiece with the creation of Saint Patrick Academy’s Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Statue. It is not uncommon to see someone pause along the pathway to admire Mary holding the baby Jesus. The process was great, timely, and we are thrilled with the final product.” The statue can be seen on the campus of Saint Patrick Academy, and will be there to inspire and lift others for hundreds of years.
