A 54 ton 35 foot high marble sculpture of the Annunciation – the announcement to the Virgin Mary by the Archangel Gabriel that she would become the mother of Jesus Christ - will be unveiled tomorrow on the campus of Ave Maria University. The bas relief sculpture will grace the façade of the campus oratory. It is the work of Marton Varo. The artist spent two years on the project – working both in Collier County and in Tuscany – where the marble for the project comes from. Varo, who was born in what is now Romania, has spent a lifetime sculpting.Valarie Alker has more.
