Maria degli Angeli
A Symphony of Burlap

 The artist is a Carmelite sister from the northern region of Italy (Aosta).  Her work is a symphony of burlap.  Using burlap to craft her figures, she has a wonderful ability to make the personages of the crèche come alive with noble beauty.  Frequently recalcitrant and taxing for any artist’s touch, burlap becomes like putty in the sister’s hand, but still achieves the task to convey the sober and simple dignity of the Incarnation.
