Big Jim: A saint, a fiesta and a sculptor

El Señor de los Afligidos (The Lord of the Afflicted Ones) by Pedro Calles, in a private chapel in Colonia Villa Seris, Hermosillo, Sonora. This deeply emotional statue of Christ is another of Calles' late works. The head and face show evidence of Calles' classical training at the Academy. The statue's eyes are said to have come from Jerusalem. Jim Griffith photo, 10/2000
