3 wooden boxes 27*34, votive offerings from Frauenberg near Admont,
bank logos cast in wax
Graz/Frauenberg, 2012

At the pilgrimage church of Frauenberg, the faithful can give a material form to their prayers and petitions in the form of wax votive offerings, which are laid at the feet of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Stylised teeth, eyes, arms and legs, hearts or houses represent prayers for physical healing, or protection of the home. At times of economic uncertainty, banks should also spare no effort. Wax logos are intended to urge the Virgin Mary to spread her protective mantle over the individual institutions.
