The Strazza Veiled Virgin Statue Introduction:
The Strazza Veiled Virgin Statue is a Carrara marble statue carved in Rome by the Italian sculptor Giovanni Strazza. This statue depicts a bust of the Virgin Mary wearing a veil. The veil of this statue looks translucent, but it is carved out of marble. And the facial features of the Virgin and the braids in the hair are visible through the stone veil.
The Veiled Virgin Statue Origin:
In the mid-nineteenth century, Italian nationalism rose, and nationalism in Italian art and music rose. Strazza’s “Veiled Virgin” is related to the Risorgimento school of Italian nationalist art. The image of a woman wearing a veil is a favorite theme of the sculptors throughout Straza’s school. Generally, the image of a masked woman is intended to embody Italy, just as Britannia symbolizes England, Hibernia symbolizes Ireland, and the Statue of Liberty symbolizes the United States.
About the Creator:
The creator of this statue, Giovanni Strazza (1818-1875) was an Italian sculptor who was born in Milan, Italy. He studied at the Brera Academy in Milan and then worked in Rome from 1840 to 1858. Strazza’s carvings confidently revive the originality of the Baroque style and represent a technical triumph that surpasses any other work of art discovered in Newfoundland in the 19th century. The Veiled Virgin also testifies to the close connection between St. John’s Irish Catholic community and the cultural and nationalist movements of the time in Europe.
