The bronze Invictus (Latin for Unconquered) depicts the imprint of a rising and ascending Christ. Its curved form is reminiscent both of the virgin womb from which Christ was born into the world and of the tomb from which Christ was raised on Easter. It bespeaks the imprint of Christ on all of reality and God’s victory over all the forces of earth that would seek to contain, confine, and control God’s Word.
The eight foot tall, 600 pound sculpture is the work of Jeffery Barber who has a Bachelor of Arts from St. Olaf College and a Master of Arts in Systematic Theology from Luther Northwestern Seminary.
The sculpture was a gift from Severen Knutson, one of the charter members of the congregation. It was unveiled at midnight during the Easter Vigil service on April 18, 1992.
