Reliquary II – Sculpture by Addé 2017-2019

 
Reliquary II

The term is, at least in countries of Christian culture, associated with religion, holy remains of saints, and such.

But reliquaries exist in many forms, according to each culture and/ or customs.

A great-uncle of mine was wounded by a stone which fell from a very old ceiling. Decades later, he would show the said stone to his visitors, wrapped in newspaper. It was a relic.

A senseless object for all but himself, to which he was attached for not killing him.

Faith, remembrance, magic, are the basic components of a relic. Yet a sculpture itself, through time, might become a relic.
