WRATHFUL' CHRIST GIVEN TO MUSEUM; Nelson Rockefeller Presents Figure of 'Heroic Size and Mood' to Modern Art IT GOES ON DISPLAY TODAY Sculpture in Brazilian Wood Is Work of Mme. Martins, Wife of Brazil's Envoy to U.S.

Nelson A. Rockefeller, former president of the Museum of Modern Art, 11 West Fifty-third Street, has presented to that institution a heroic figure of Christ, nearly 8 feet high, sculptured in jacaranda wood by the Brazilian artist Maria. Although the museum made no announcement on the subject, it was learned that Maria is the professional name of the wife of the Brazilian Ambassador at Washington, Carlos Martins.
