BASILICA OF SAN PIETRO IN VINCOLI IN ROME - ITALY.

Sculptural installation "CORPO DI LUCE" was created with a special permit from the Italian Ministry of Culture. The permit was obtained due to the high content that the artwork contains and because it was set up in front of Michelangelo's Moses. The artwork reveals the esoteric meaning of why Michelangelo's Moses looks to his left towards the entrance of the Basilica. So far, it is the only contemporary work that has been exhibited in this Basilica. The primary thanks goes to the congregation of the Order of the Regular Canons of the Lateran, the custodians of this sacred place, known throughout the world.
