Pierced

While shopping in a nearby city this week, I took these pictures of a sculpture on a busy highway median. The name of it is "Shugoweh 1". I don't know what that means, but I know what it reminds me of.


“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
Isaiah 53:5

Wonderful news in that verse. This is certain a unique sculpture.

Ann said...

I've never seen anything like that before. You do find the most unique things

Karin said...

I do wonder what statement the artist was trying to make! Sure agree with you about that it's reminding us of our Savior who was pierced! You do always find fascinating things to post about Ginny!

That is definitely a unique sculpture. The first thing that popped into my mind when I opened your blog and saw the header was an image from an old b/w cartoon. One baseball character pitches a ball so hard it burns a hole through the glove of the catcher. Don't know why that came to mind!

this is just about the ugliest sculpture ever. i googled the word and got nothing, the word doesn't come up at all. name and sculpture are just plain weird. but the scripture you used is just plain wonderful. agree with Ruth, the news in the verse is Good News indeed. agree with LC you always always find interesting subjects and i love your blog because i never ever never know what i will find here.

That's ... weird, even though I get your line of thought I'm not sure I get the artist's ...

I know what it reminds me of too. It has to have something to do with it. He did so much for us didn't he? sandie

If you hadn't seen this before you probably were surprised. Are you going to find out the meaning of the statue. I am very curious. Good luck.

Whatever the meaning is, you should still respect and believe in a positive way in your interpretation.

Greetings,
Filip

Hi Ginny, Happy Super Bowl Sunday to you. May the best team win!!! I personally am for the Giants --but I truly just hope it is a good game. Anxious to see some great commercials also!!!

My Goodness--what a sculpture. I tried to find that word, but couldn't find it anywhere. I'd love to know what the artist meant... It does look as if it is Christ being pierced. If you find out, let us know.

Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Ginny! I hope you and Phil are doing well! I've never seen a sculpture like this before. You are full of new and interesting things... I love this verse!

Rhonda said...

Not sure what it means either, I google per google there is no such word ...but I decided to add to my google search definition" "Shugoweh - considering the striped pants this statue is wearing and the pierced hand I'm going to declare in my own world it is " a prison of love"...see that sounds just right does it not? Happy Monday Ginny

Reena Walkling said...

An odd sculpture ... looks like it should be on a playground or Dr. Seuss story. You find such interesting things around you!

George said...

This is an interesting sculpture, and I also thought of Isaiah when I saw your header.

S. Etole said...

I, too, wonder what the name means, but I initially thought it must be at a church until I saw the striped legs.

Glenda said...

I'm thankful He was willing!

Annie said...

Honestly, Ginny, you find the most extraordinary images in your world. VA and WV must be filled with great humored people.

Yes, it reminds me of the same thing.

Very interesting, Ginny. Maybe you could find out more about the artist.

Rose said...

It reminded me of the same thing it did you!

I thought for sure it was a sculpture of Jesus' hand, now I am really curious! If you find out will you let us know?
