Many of his pieces are installed worldwide with some of his most reputed works displayed in historical churches in Rome and at the Vatican. Timothy describes his most important work as visual translations of the Bible. Timothy personally sculpts every original small masterpiece complete with his signature or monogram. Each replica is detailed by hand to the exacting standards of this modern day master sculptor.
