Gran Elefandret

Love this sculpture!

Virgin and Child in Majesty, 1150–1200 French; Made in Auvergne Walnut with paint, gesso, and linen This type of sculpture, with the Christ Child seated in the Virgin's lap in a frontal pose, is known as a Sedes Sapientiae (Throne of Wisdom). These seemingly straightforward images convey complex theological ideas. Mary serves as Christ's throne.

Pongolini Giuseppe, Theme: "The unusual expressiveness of pain". Pain as revolutionary part of a tame society.
