Modern Stigmata


We are very curious about all those cases of stigmata around the world, that’s so confusing to us to understand how did you wake up one day with Jesus Christ’s wounds? Are these phenomena some kind of self induce wounds as imitation of Christ? We can’t tell for sure but we imagined a world where that was one more trick of Christianity, a factory/mechanism (as seen below) that spreads the word of God trough inexplicable events and dogma. Humm… we love Dogma, don’t we?

”Hand Prosthetics or Le Petit Lorrain mechanical hand” in: Dix livres de la chirurgie - Dr. Ambroise Paré, 1564.
“Christ's stigmata” in: Historia Admiranda de Iesu Christi Stigmatibus- archbishop Alfonso Paleotti, 1607.
“The Sacred Heart and the wounds of Christ displayed on a Cross (‘Arms of Jesus Christ’)” - Unknown, c.1490-1530.

At the same time we wanted to show an aesthetic inspired by hindu mythology, an hand rising from the material world with the gift of intuition and comprehension. Maybe an alternative version of Nirvana. Well and that is quite the opposite we said above.
