Which Christian Sculpture Are We Arguing About?

***Edit***: The mystery has been solved. See below.

I just posted earlier today about a Christian sculpture at Whitewater Memorial State Park in Liberty, Indiana:

Part of the negative reaction, in addition to the presence of a Christian cross, was the amateur look of the kneeling farmboy/soldier.

You can see that same image on the Palladium-Item‘s website right here, where it says the picture was “submitted.” (By whom? We don’t know.)

A more recent article, in the same newspaper, features a completely different version of the sculpture. (This one is also “Submitted”)

You know what? I’ll say it. Not bad. The cross is still there on the bottom right, so the problems still need to be fixed, but it doesn’t look all that bad. Nicely done, Dayle Lewis.

But which is it? The top one or the bottom one?

***Update***: Reader Amanda helped solve the mystery. She visited the park and got pictures from all angles. It turns out the sculpture is a little bit of everything:
