Special exhibition: Works of the monastery
Monastic works were mostly made by nuns with great skills. They made paraments, reliquaries, ornate devotional pictures, figures of the Christ child, etc., which were intended for both ecclesiastical and private use as a visible sighn of the worship of God and his saints. All techniques of classical female handicrafts were used: embroidery, needle painting, weaving but also miniature painting or wax embossing (wax reliefs with different motifs). All these techniques can be seen in the special exhibition from 15.03.-31.10. at the great hall of the museum. For the first time , these artistic works, mainly from the 18th century, will be shown to the public. One of the special features is the catacomb Saint Valentin, a loan from the parish of St. Martin in Passiria. This is a full body relic ornate. Let yourself be surprised what treasures Abbot Markus, who curated this exhibition in person, brought to light from the abbey's collection.
