Remnants of prayers
The landscape of Poland is full of religious figures, crosses, statues, or small buildings that resembles a little house or miniature chapel located along the roadsides. These shrines were often founded by individuals, families, communities of entire villages as intention to thank a saint or God for a benefit or blessing received and sometimes as a remembrance for a tragedy or a crime.
The series Remnants of Prayers aims to document the chosen sacred objects (roadside shrines) of northern Poland and to familiarize people with the knowledge about them, especially in the context of their multicultural tradition.
The project is realized by the National Museum in Gdańsk.
