MARIA is a sculptural and sensory installation of an image of the Mother of Jesus.
The original shape molded by Guido Dettoni della Grazia grew out of an
encounter between hands and wax. From this original hand-sized
version, he replicated the form in special editions of thirty-three
different types of wood from all over the world. In each exhibition
that you see featured on the website (nesher.org)
the visitor is invited to become fully involved by touching, smelling, looking closely and feeling the shape and its subtleties.
We also have links to information on some of his other projects: Visage
du Christ ; and l'apparition de la Vierge Marie à Pontmain
