User Review  - MerryMary - LibraryThing

A young sculptor is commissioned to create a frame for the cup from the Last Supper. He travels around the Roman Empire, sculpting the faces of Jesus' disciples, and praying for the chance to see Christ's face. A sweeping epic, and engrossing. Recommended. Read full review
