Jonah Model

    Jonah is seen in deep personal spiritual confusion; floating, buffeted by currents and breakers, sinking, submerged, part human and part fish. Fetal, hands clasped, and drawn inward, he laments his weakness and loneliness, thanking God for mercy and salvation.
    Waves formed by the motif of Jonah's hair, tangled with seaweeds and sea animals, buoy a playful orca. Jonah's deliverance is depicted as an acrobatic spiritual resurgence. Free from encumbrance, the open figure's leap and reach are juxtaposed with the cruciform flukes of the whale.
