Modern religious art

Giuseppe Ducrot (b. 1966) is one of the artists invited to the recent exhibition at the Vatican to honour the Pope`s sixty years in the priesthood

Here is a photograph of the Pope before Ducrot`s head of St Jerome The Pope looks pleased, Not surprisingly.

Here are more images of this great sculptural work by Ducrot:

Religious images and works form an important part of Ducros` corpus of work. Here are some of his Saint Veronicas with Faces of Christ

And here is a baroque representation of a Baroque Pope

And here is his magnificent monument to St Benedict in Cassino
