#704 No Greater Love

Acquired 2015

As I walked into the Brookwood Gift and Garden Center, the first thing I saw was this hand-crafted large clay hand-painted bowl of the chosen mother of Jesus holding Him close to her pondering in her heart that her Son would be her Savior. The piece is entitled, “No Greater Love is there than this.” The phrase is from John 15:13 where Jesus speaks of Himself - There is no greater love than this that a man would lay down his life for his friends. This elegant piece stands on a very sturdy plate stand which I purchased with the nativity bowl. Purchase price, $119. October 2015. Houston, TX.
