This work, consisting of a piece of sculpture and 7 paintings aims to present a fictive spiritual world, that has the characteristic aesthetic elements of a Religious Institution.
In this imaginary dimension, priests and monks express directly their deepest human evil feelings revealing in public senses of inferiority, negativity, anger, agony, fear and bitterness.
