The Crushing of Satan
The Crushing of Satan is air-dry stone clay, 11"tall. His lower body is a cobra skin. He illustrates the verse in Genesis 3:15, "....but He will crush your head." where God tell Satan that, even though he has succeeded in bringing evil into God's perfection, he will be overpowered in the end. Here is Satan; young, strong and arrogant, rearing up to strike his anger into the world. He's coiled on a slab of stone over which falls the golden shadow of the Cross. He has thrown up one arm to shield his head. This pose catches him in the realization that he is defeated.
