Columbus the Evangelizer
Fonderia d`Arte del Chiaro
Stanley Bleifeld, the noted Connecticut sculptor, was commissioned by the Knights Columbus to sculpt a statue of Christopher Columbus for the new Knights of Columbus Museum that opened in the year 2001 in New Haven, Connecticut. In creating the statue, Bleifeld spent nearly a year studying Columbus and his legacy. He also looked at other statues and depictions of Columbus. In his final edition he chose to portray the faith brought by Columbus in bringing the news of salvation to all of mankind. The result is a nine-foot statue of Christopher Columbus holding aloft the cross of evangelization.
