Miralda’s renowned ‘Lamb of the Apocalypse’ returns to the MNAC
The award-winning art piece will be on display in the Barcelona gallery for the first time in 25 years
The enormous tapestry by Catalan artist Antoni Miralda, ‘Lamb of the Apocalypse,’ will be put on display in the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) for the first time in 25 years, for this weekend.
On Saturday, April 6th, the museum will also be celebrating a performance ceremony. At 12.30pm visitors can enjoy a tasting menu inspired by a medieval recipe book, accompanied by music for the occasion.
At the ceremony, designed by the artist, the lamb will be symbolically sacrificed, cooked, and feasted on by the visitors.
The ‘Lamb of the Apocalypse’ recreates the Agnus Dei of the Romanesque mural Sant Climent de Taüll, and was originally created as part of The Honeymoon Project (1986-1992), celebrating the marriage between the Statue of Liberty and the Columbus Monument.
The award-winning tapestry, stretching 18x15 meters, forms part of a larger exhibition of Miralda’s body of work entitled ‘Peccata Mundi,’ which also features drawings and audiovisual material.
