And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.

Matthew 27:50-52

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the greatest gift that has ever been given, and placing one's hope and faith for salvation in Him is the most important decision a person can make.  It is a decision I made due, in large part, to my mother.  Because of that, I am giving this model to her for Christmas this year.
