Venetian Wall Shrines
















As well as a superfluity of Titians, Bellinis, Veroneses, etc. etc. etc., Venice also has a fair amount of religious folk art which, in some ways, is just as fascinating. One expression of this folk religion is in the profusion of wall shrines. Some are complex and beautiful, others are simple and naive. The results of my happy-snapping of Venetian wall shrines is now on flickr.
