French artist Soasig Chamaillard was raised as a Christian. In his new work, Chamaillard wanted to challenge quesions of ‘a women’s role in society’, so he decided to conscript the Virgin Mary. Restoring damaged statues that were either donated or discovered at garage sales, Chamaillard transformed her into a playful and more accessible pop-cultural icon better suited to our times. The pieces are for sale individually through his website.
