Bad Photography Sunday: The Statue

It's a very strong statue for the middle of a college campus.  This is what you'll find in the commons of the University of Scranton.  Below is a paragraph I lifted from the U's web site.

 TheMetanoia (Transformation) sculpture is located at the center of the campus where the Royal Way and the University Commons intersect. This large sculpture, surrounded by the Centennial Fountain, depicts Ignatius surrendering his soldier’s sword at Montserrat. This significant event marked the beginning of his new life as a “soldier for Christ.” The base of the sculpture, like all the cornerstones of those buildings erected under the Jesuits, contains the Latin motto of St. Ignatius and the Society of Jesus, Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam – “All for the greater glory of God.”
