Vuitton Virgin

I believe in Art and its free expression, but being an ardent devotee of the Blessed Mother, the Vuitton Madonna is kind of hard to take for me. Artist, Francesco De Molfetta, 31 takes an image of Our Lady of Lourdes, and interprets it with her veil being that of the iconic Monogram Canvas. He claims that he created the work "to denounce a society based on the cult of appearance through the use of a brand that represents the search for ephemeral happiness." The biennial is held at Isola del Gran Sasso in the central region of Abruzzo. I think he's just going for the shock factor...just my 2¢.


  1. OMG ilove it!!
    i want it!!!!:)


  2. I am a Catholic and great devotee of the Virgin Mary. However, I can't say I am too shocked by this image and its message. Don't forget that, in the past, the Virgin and the saints were often depicted in contemporary fashions. Why not carry on this tradition?
