This new casting is a more traditional version of the sculpture Forsaken. Forsaken depicts the moment when Christ cried out from the cross, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which means "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
People of faith often feel rejected by their God when they face pain, difficulty or tragedy. The interesting thing to me is that the Bible never promised to remove those difficulties. Instead, Christ is depicted as a man who suffered and also feels rejected by God.
