This exhibition, which is in its eighth edition, is set in a typical yet unique environment thus creating a specific ambiance for the Holy Week. The exhibition focuses on the image of the face of Christ, dating back to the second half of the 19th century. One can find a set of statues related to the Passion of Christ, created from clay and papier-mâché by the artist Manuel Buhagiar. The statues of the Crucifixion of Christ and the Lady of Our Sorrows will also be exhibited. These two antique statues were created over a hundred years ago in Lecce, Italy and have recently been restored by the artist Rueben Farrugia. The exhibition also consists of an original chapel specifically decorated for this holy season.

The exhibition is free of charge. Any groups (not less than 8 people) which would like to see the exhibition during other hours are to contact the exhibitor.
