Remnants of prayers

The landscape of Poland is full of religious figures, crosses, statues, or small buildings that resemble little houses or miniature chapels located along the roadsides. These shrines were often founded by individuals, families or communities of entire villages intended to thank a saint or God for a benefit or blessing received, or sometimes as a remembrance for a tragedy or a crime.
One of the main aims of the project is familiarizing people with knowledge of the roadside shrines, especially in the context of their multicultural tradition.
I was invited to take a part in this large-scale project of The National Museum in Gdańsk.
