Caspar, a fifteenth-century Austrian sculpture of one of the three magi has “wandered” away from the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA). As the magi are wont to do this time of year, Caspar has “left” the museum to follow the Star of Bethlehem, in search of the Christ Child. Exactly where his adventures will take him in the coming weeks will be determined by friends of LUMA both far and wide.
LUMA is asking everyone for help as we try to keep tabs on Caspar’s whereabouts. Part of LUMA’s permanent Martin D’Arcy Collection, fashionable Caspar is easily identified by his small crown, green thigh-length tunic, red tights, and stylish poulaines (pointed shoes).
