Every once in a while, especially in this time of pestilence and gloom, I need a reminder that there are still artists working; that there are artists searching for a path through this anguish; that there are artists interpreting this devastation.
The above image is of the altar in the Church of San Silvestro in the small town of Pietrarubbia, north-west of Urbino. (a small country-church – chiesetta – among the rolling hills of Le Marche) The artist is Arnaldo Pomodoro.
And I used The Moses, shot in shadow and light, as the featured image, because like the ancient Hebrews, we too need passage out of this darkness.
Both images – The Moses and Pomodoro’s altar sculpture – are from Facebook posts.
