Terra cotta Story Wall figure with missing digit

Story Wall figure before repair

I was at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Ames recently to repair one of the Story Wall‘s terra cotta figures (pictured), whose finger had broken off.

If you’re at St. Thomas Aquinas, go try to find it! I’ll come back here later and show you the location of the repair.

Follow-up: As indicated on the pictures below, the repair is on the bottom figure in the center right trio (which depicts education and growth).

At the church, you’ll get a different perspective on the figures — these pictures were taken straight-on, and in person you’re looking at them from below.
