YASSSS! It’s very ‘orange-you-glad-to-see-me?’ Dina Lohan-meets-Trump complexion realness. Gives it a bit of POP, a bit of FLAIR! Don’t you think!?
“The statue had been vandalized before, at least once, maybe twice,” he said. “It’s always Jesus’ head that goes missing. Probably because it’s smaller and easier to break off.” In the past, parishioners always found the head nearby and were able to reattach it. “This time we looked high and low. No head. No Jesus.” Lajeunesse went to several businesses to see if a replacement head could be built.
“It has to be custom made. And nobody even wanted to consider it,” he said. Replacing the entire statue would cost between $6,000 and $10,000. “You wonder, if we do replace it with a new one, will we be up against the same situation?” Lajeunesse said, noting the head’s reputation for going missing.
That’s when a local artist knocked on Lajeunesse’s door, asking about the statue. “She was quite upset about it and she offered to do something if she could,” Lajeunesse said.
Custom made! It definitely IS the thought that counts in this case, otherwise Jesus wouldn’t even have a face! Thoughts!?
