超模瑪利亞

Supermodel Mary

格拉納達的教堂很漂亮,細緻的木雕、漂亮的天花,都令人目不暇給。

其中一間以聖母瑪利亞為主角的教堂,令我印象特別深刻。

 

那間教堂有幾具聖母瑪利亞的全身人偶,每具約一米,人偶都供在聖壇上,供人仰望,聖母們的衣飾非常華麗:繡花白頭紗、銀雕大頭飾、藍絨長身裙……件件精美。

 

最特別的是她們的容貌,外貌年齡約廿多歲,容貌極美,化上細妝,仿如人類,甚至是超模;人偶們的表情極生動,位位神情哀傷,豆大的淚珠正滑下臉龐,以淚水俘虜人心,以哀傷收獲虔誠。

 

我第一次見識到把「哀傷」做得如此出神入化的藝術,原來客觀地觀看哀傷,真的心有戚戚然,真是我見猶憐啊,這些美麗動人的人偶成功將聖母世俗化,令眾人的膜拜對象有一張清晰的美麗臉孔。

 

聖母本身是女性形象,淚水代表柔弱,「柔弱的女性」正符合男權社會下的女性形象;加上登峰造極的藝術技巧,就廣為大眾接受。

 

 

 

Churches in Granada are beautiful. I was so amazed by the detail craved wood decoration and beautiful ceilings.

I was deeply impressed by a church which focus on Holy Mary.

 

A few Holy Mary dolls were in that church. They were around a meter tall and put up on walls for people to worship.

Their clothes were expensively beautiful: laced white veil, silver hair decoration, blue velvet dress…

 

Their appearance were outstandingly beautiful. They looked like in their 20s’ with detail make up. They just looked like HUMAN, even super-model.

They have a lively sad expression. Big tears were falling down their pretty faces.

Their tears capture hearts and their sadness gain devout.

 

That was my first time to experience art which depict sadness so precise. I was moved for observing sadness objectively. These beautiful dolls ‘humanized’ Holy Mary. And gave a clear pretty face to her followers.

 

Holy Mary appeared as a female figure. Her tears represent weakness. A ‘weak lady’ suit the women perception in a patriarchal society. And with the supreme technique in art (Doll making). It win the people’s hearts.
