Sans Soucie was commissioned to create this stunning etched glass wall art piece for one of the most respected medical universities in the United States, Loma Linda University in Murrieta, California. The University is not only an excellent hospital with an impeccable reputation, but is one of the top medical universities in the U.S. and one of the most difficult schools to be accepted for. It is a Seventh-day Adventist educational health-science institution with more than 4,000 students. LLU is composed of 8 schools within the university. It offers 55 programs by the schools of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Religion and Behavioral Health.
The piece is 84′ wide x 42″ tall and is made up of 1/2″ thick clear glass that has been hand chiseled with irregular custom edging on three sides then deep sandblast etched and carved in a custom design created by owner/artist Chauncey Gannett, depicting the story in the Bible of the Good Samaritan, also the title of the piece. The glass is mounted using stainless steel stand-off posts, surrounded by wood paneling also chiseled to follow the glass edges. To bring out the detail sin the carving even further, the glass is then edge lit from the bottom, to finish off the stunning, dramatic effect.
