Maestro di Ozieri, The proof of the true cross

Sprayed wall, Olbia, June 2016

This work was done in Olbia at ParkinGo (Olbia-Costa Smeralda Airport) in June 2016. It reproduces a detail of a painting by Maestro di Ozieri (Sassari, end of 15th century – Sassari, 1554), The proof of the true cross, part of a polyptych by the artist. This painter, born in Sassari, has very strong ties with Sardinia. The original work is located in Benetutti, a town near Olbia, inside the Church of Saint Helen Empress. The painting depicts Helen at the moment when she finds the three crosses buried in the Holy Land.
