NEW CONCORD, OHIO: A local parent hopes to put a life-size sculpture of Jesus on property near a high school in an eastern Ohio district that agreed to remove a religious painting from an office after the American Civil Liberties Union threatened a lawsuit.

Zanesville lawyer Jeanette Moll tells the Columbus Dispatch she commissioned a bronze statue similar to the image in the painting. She says it’s an intentional effort but isn’t a protest of the East Muskingum school board’s decision to remove the painting from John Glenn High School in New Concord.

Moll says the sculpture would be a memorial to faith, placed on private land. She says she’s in talks with a homeowner and church near the school about a permanent location for the sculpture.

Moll’s children attended the school.
