The Veiled Christ is an extraordinary marble sculpture by Giuseppe Sanmartino, housed in the Sansevero Chapel in #Naples. The work, realised in 1753 and also admired by #Canova, is considered one of the world’s greatest sculptural masterpieces. The dead Christ, lying on a mattress, is covered with a veil that adheres perfectly to His figure. The skill of the Neapolitan sculptor has been able to convey the suffering that Christ has experienced before the Crucifixion through the composition of the veil, from which you can see the signs on the face and on the body of the martyrdom endured.
