Deacon Eddie Moore

Description:
The object is a wooden model depicting a scene of Christ (green) orating to two unknown figures: One kneels with a cane, and the other stands.
As told in the Biblical book of Matthew, these figurines have been carved, painted, and arranged to reenact the story of Christ foretelling the destruction of Jerusalem and his second coming to his disciples. Those that practice Christianity regard this text as the basis of their faith as it tells them Christ will come again.
