Quandary Resolution 1120
pygmalionism, penalize, hawthorn, empyrean
A hawthorn wreath encircling His head, the figure of the dying Christ hung limply from the crudely shaped bronze crucifix, its highly polished and exquisitely carved rosewood contrasting with the rough metal; its creator, replete with pygmalionism, gazed lovingly at his work, such that onlookers half expected a bolt to shoot down from the empyrean heights to penalize him for the sin of idolatry.
