Sister artists did not limit themselves to oil and paint. Sister Justina of the Mission San Jose Dominicans worked in stone. She designed and constructed the façade of St. Anne of the Sunset Church in San Francisco. Her frieze runs the entire width of the façade and depicts Salvation history from Abraham to Christ.
