ETHNOGRAPHY: The Redeemer


HPIM8883Without doubt the most beloved statue by the locals is that of Jesus carrying the cross or Christ the Redeemer.  This statue is the work of the Maltese artist Carlo Darmanin.

Anyone viewing this statue is immediately touched by the look on the face of Jesus Christ under the weight of the cross.

The cross crafted of inlaid artistic work in ebony was made by Mose’ Dalmas and last year was its 100th anniversary.  The finials of the cross are made of silver.
