I first saw this wonderful Kenneth Wyatt bronze in his Red River gallery. I was struck by it’s simple beauty and profound meaning. It is titled, “Legacy”. As I looked at it, I was struck with how God has given us family so that the future can be a place of hope and goodness. I remember thinking that this bronze really captures the heart of what Wesley Putnam Ministries is all about. We long to impart God’s love into the next generation. When the time comes for us to go home, we want to leave a long line of believers who we will meet in heaven.
Here is how Kenneth described this piece.
“To me it represents the legacy of faith we leave behind for our children. I closed, in prayer, the eyes of the upturned face of the father as he holds his youngest. The little girl clings to her daddy by holding on to his pants pockets and reaches as high as she can by standing on his shoes.
Like my father did so many times, the man has rolled up his sleeves. I did this to show the muscles and strength of the man. I wanted the power of the man to be felt so I gave him a strong curved backbone and wide shoulders. Here was a working man and regardless of what we work at: carpenter, bookkeeper, preacher, cook, athlete, or anything else, our work also becomes our legacy to our family and to the nation.”

That day in Kenneth’s gallery, Felicia purchased this bronze as a Father’s Day gift for me. I loved it so much, when I got home I called them back and ordered one for each of my sons who were also fathers.
If you like the message of this wonderful work of art, you can give the fathers you know one of the most meaningful Father’s Day gifts they’ve ever received, a signed, numbered, limited edition bronze by Kenneth Wyatt.
