Relief sculptures in wood inlay

For the original chapel of the former Convent of the Sacred Heart School, Hildreth Meière designed two relief sculptures in wood inlay depicting Our Lady at Prayer and St. Joseph at Work. Executed by Rambusch, the sculptures were a gift from Meière. Today the panels hang in the entrance hall of the Science Building, where Meière’s rich, monochromatic figures in various shades of brown complement the lighter color of the oak paneling behind them.
