GOD THE SCULPTOR

***

seems to hear “Ave

God’s sculpture goes beyond sight

seems to smell incense

***

NOTE: God’s sculpture is so good that Dante the Pilgrim seems to hear an angel say “Ave” to Mary in God’s sculpture of the Annunciation. He also seems to smell incense as he looks at God’s sculpture of the Ark of the Covenant being brought to Jerusalem.
