Decending Holy Spirit Tabernacle
Caritus Christi Chapel
Sisters of Charity
This tabernacle sculpture of the descending Holy Spirit was designed to accommodate the Sisters' desire for the constant presence of a single consecrated host within their newly designed Chapel. The wingspan of this piece is thirty-six inches. The Dove was made from hand formed copper and plated on the entire external surface with silver. The interior chamber has been plated with gold. The Dove's chest plate, which is also the door of the tabernacle, is made with a technique of kiln fired enamel and gold. The nimbus surrounding the Dove is silver with fired enamel jewels.
The entire piece is suspended above the altar on an intricate cable system designed specifically by New Guild to allow the piece to be raised and lowered, as needed.
New Guild Studio has been in the liturgical arts field since 1991. Over the years, the company of four - David and Suzann Miriello and David and Mary Korns - have completed numerous sacred art projects that range in scope and scale from the design and production of a single chalice to the renovation of an entire church.
From the beginning, sacred art has brought form and fulfillment to mans quest
for the divine. Rendered by the right hands, familiar motifs and figures have
the power to move people beyond the practical concerns of the world,
awakening in them the possibilities of the eternal.
