The sculpture to represent the Risen Christ was requested beginning 2013 to Guido Dettoni by Msgr Philip Heng and Mrs Terese Huang for the Parish of St. Ignatius Church in Singapore. Mrs Huang had already donated a marble enlargement of the Sculpture MARIA for the same Parish.
The master piece was achieved at the end of 2013 but, before being shipped to its final destination in Singapore, it was presented February 10, 2014, at the Chapel of the University of Theology of Barcelona and blessed by the Cardinal Lluis Martinez Sistach, archbishop of Barcelona. The act counted with the presence of Dr. Armand Puig, dean or the University and the poet Carles Duarte i Montserrat author of the poem “Resurrection after Guido Dettoni”.
Mail sent October 11, 2013 by Msgr Philip Heng to Guido Dettoni.
Thank you so very much for the very beautiful image of the Risen Christ! You must have been truly inspired by the Holy Spirit to capture the dynamic posture of Christ rising from His death. . . I am very happy and excited to see this final piece of inspiration in our parish columbarium together with the matching image of Our Lady that you have also created through the deep inspiration of the Holy Spirit. . .

Parish Rector of Church of St Ignatius, Singapore”
