Multifaceted Icon MARIA
after Guido Dettoni della Grazia

The artist, plunging with his eyes closed into the well of his memory and devotion, created this statue. Looking then at the sculpture from different points of view, he recognizes the visions that, held back by his memory, had taken shape without any conscious intention, except that of discovering Mary as he shaped her: the annunciation, in Nazareth, carrying the pitcher to the well, the pregnancy, with the Child on her lap, the ascension, and the peace.
MARIA thus unexpectedly becomes a multifaceted Icon that shows us these moments of her life that are also the moments of everyone’s life.
