Ave Maria (shrine)

Some of the shrines in Venice are very elegant while others are more homespun. This Castello shrine is kind of a mix - there's an intriquing old relief of the Mother and Child inside but the tabernacle and its dusty silk flowers are more charming and folksy than elegant.

Hi Annie,
here is a link on this shrine from VeneziaMuseo:

I think they talk about almost all the shrines of Venice.

Take care,

What an interesting shrine, Annie -- as you say, a real mix of styles! I do love the relief, and the blue colouring at the top of the shrine.

Hi Annie, that's a really nice looking shrine. The flowers look almost real. I am enjoying reading about and looking at your photos of these beautiful shrines. It seems that each one seems so unique and different. I really hope to see some of them next time I am there.

Thanks for this wonderful post Annie. Have a great evening.

Interesting post, Annie! Thanks for showing us who will never get to Italy your wonderful treasures!

Love this sweet shrine with the white picket gate! It seems that this one might have been placed at a lower level than most wall shrines, and with free access to anyone.

Interesting shrine, Annie. And I do love the mix in styles in it.

I am really enjoying all of the shrines you are posting. Beautiful photos.
