The Church Styx was carved to be donated to a silent auction to support a church’s tutoring center for neighborhood children. The main theme is the repeated use of sets of three. Starting at the top, there is a crown with three points. Beneath that there are three windows. These are followed by a symbol for each member of the Trinity. The first symbol is the Hand of God, then the Descending Dove, and the Cross. Lastly there is a chalice pouring out the water of life. The water spirals once around the staff and slowly broadens to encompass the entire staff as it reaches the bottom. About half way down the staff there is a fish symbol worked into the flow of water.
