Sculpture to Adorn University

Sculptor Marton Varo chips away at a $3 million, 35-foot-tall bas relief sculpture of The Annunciation at the Ave Maria University campus in Immokalee, Fla. The sculpture will one day adorn the facade of the 10-storey Ave Maria Oratory. The building of the university and town have slowed with the recession but its chancellor, Thomas Monaghan, has made some cuts that will preserve the dream he has for a place steeped in conservative Catholic teaching and symbolism.
