"Paperolles Reliquary - XVIIIth Century"
Paperolles reliquary. Technique based on the winding of strips of paper to form various decorations, which are stuck by the edge on a support to constitute a subject in three dimensions, it is especially practiced by poor organizations to venerate God, to embellish the sacred messages and , thus, promoting their beliefs. From the 18th century, the genre became more democratic in certain European countries where this discipline became popular by settling in the field of decoration.
