Aleteia: Maybe not as famous as Sammartino’s 1753 Veiled Christ, Giovanni Strazza’s Veiled Virgin is another exceptional sculpture, featuring a human figure covered with a transparent shroud carved out of the very same marble block shared with the rest of the statue. The sculptor’s mastery, able to make the veil covering the head of the Virgin seem in fact “transparent,” earned this piece a well-deserved place in the history of Western sculpture.
