Italian Sculptor Giovanni Strazza:

Italian Sculptor Giovanni Strazza:

First of all, we all know that the Virgin with the Veil is the work of Italian sculptor Giovanni Strazza. This exquisite Carrara marble statue he carved in Rome. Also, this marble sculpture depicts a bust of the Virgin Mary wearing a veil. The veil of the Virgin appears to be translucent but is actually carved from marble. Such exquisite works have won the love of many people, and they have become indispensable works of art in home decoration.

First, the statue was shipped to Newfoundland in 1856. And this beautiful marble statue of the Virgin Mary made by Strazza is loved by many people. This sculpture has a veil on its face, and its body and facial features are clearly visible at a glance, making it a perfect art treasure. The Masked Virgin was subsequently kept in the Anglican Palace next to the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. John. And the sculpture existed in the Anglican Palace until 1862. It was later presented to Mary Magdalene O’Shaughnessy by then-Bishop Malloch. Since then, the bust has been in St. John’s Cathedral Square.

Details of the Veiled Virgin:

The masked virgin is simply too beautiful. There is no doubt that the veils made by Strazza are amazing. He completely simulates the transparency of the real veil. And behind the veil, we could see Mary’s beautiful face. It’s awesome how light and real the veil looks. So much so that we consider the veil to be a unique feature of Mary. When we saw Mary, we felt inner peace and peace. Also, we could read calmness and humility in Mary’s face. But at the same time, strength could be read from her expression. However, this power comes from the awareness that God loves her. Also, we could see Mary with her eyes closed and her head down. Mary seems to be praying for peace or expressing a sense of sadness.

How was the Veiled Virgin Made?

Sophisticated clay model:

If we want to make a perfect veil sculpture, we first need to create a clay model according to the draft. Moreover, the artist needs to squeeze out the girl’s facial features and veil on the clay model. Then the clay model is cast into a plaster statue. After that, the artist made further carvings on the plaster, making it a perfect veiled sculpture. Finally, according to the size and proportions of the plaster, the artist carved an identical veil sculpture on the marble.

The Artist’s Extreme Skill:

Among them, the undulations of the veil, every tiny fold, requires the artist to carefully sculpt. In the end, the artist has to polish it with marble to achieve the ultimate classic. The veil sculpture process is complex, and every step requires the artist’s extremely high skill. There is no doubt that Trevi has superb engraving skills. It is with such an artist’s complicated carvings that the girl’s beautiful face is created. In addition, we could see the delicateness of the veil and the soft silk skirt that clings to the girl’s face. Under the light, the sculpture seems to breathe and smile. She gently touched people’s hearts.

Raffaelle Monti Artists:

In addition to Giovanni Strazza, created the famous sculpture of the Virgin with the Veil. Ravello Montia sculpts a series of veiled female sculptures. Raffaelle Monti was a 19th-century sculptor, writer, and poet. Raffaelle’s father, Etano Monti, was also a famous sculptor. Therefore, Raffaelle studied sculpture under the tutelage of his father. Raffaelle created a series of works including A Veiled Vestal Virgin. Among them is the marble bust of The Bride.

The Origin of The Veiled Vestal Virgin:

Vestal, carved by Monti, was the patron saint of ancient Rome. And these girls are virgins who serve the goddess of the West, so they are called “virgins of the West”. They are responsible for taking care of the holy fire that is lit on the altar of Wester. In the middle of the 18th century, the temple of Wester was excavated from the ruins of Pompeii, and the creation boom with Wester as the theme lasted for more than 50 years.

 

The Origin of The Veiled Vestal Virgin:

 

Marble The Veiled Vestal Virgin is located at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England. Commissioned by the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1847. In ancient Rome, virgin priests were in charge of the sacred fire in temples. They kept the flame unquenched and were seen as the basis of Rome’s security. The priestess sculpture was suggested to be in the form of a to express its purity. This sculpture was featured in the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice.

 

The Origin of The Veiled Vestal Virgin:

The Veil is a Beautiful Metaphor for Faith:

Why was the veil so popular among 19th-century Italian sculptors? These characters love the veiled virgin’s worth because it allows them to show off their artistry. The veil is such a thin, light, and invisible thing. But the veil in sculpture could be an engine for overcoming difficult obstacles and overcoming limits. At the same time, showing the love and faith of Our Lady makes her confident, yet human. Furthermore, the veiled virgin value may be to some extent a symbol of unity. Because she is one of the main religious figures of the Italian Catholic tradition. She represents a young pure woman with pure intentions like the new Italy.
