This hand carved piece is nestled in a nest of moss for countertop display. The moss offers vibrant contrast to the natural browns of the avocado seed.
This piece depicts the story from Mark 4:35-41 where Jesus as asleep in the boat in the storm until His disciples awaken him. I'm always struck by His comfort with chaos. This brings me a comforting reminder that while yes, He is powerful enough to calm the chaos in my life, He is also perfectly comfortable being with me in it - I do not have to clean myself up before He will draw close. If you look closely at the carving, you will find one face just above the edge of the boat with eyes closed. Two other figures peek over the side desperately looking out at the storm.
