A “Crown of Thorns”, 19 feet in diameter, executed in iron  and suspended over the sanctuary;  an altar reminiscent of Stonehenge, constructed in native stone and wrought iron; and the entrance doors worked in embossed copper, contributed to the design of architect Alfred Browning Parker for Hope Lutheran Church in South Miami, Florida.

For Florida International University’s sculpture, “Las Cuatro Razas”, it was only natural that Vrana should be inspired by his years of travel in Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America.  This part of the commission for the Primera Casa is a multiple sculpture with components of ferro cement and hammered, brazed sheet bronze, held off the wall in an area 3-‘ x 103’ and elevated between two stair towers.
