Via Matris

This area is dedicated to the role of Mary in the life of her son, Jesus. The Via Matris, or Way of Our Sorrowful Mother, showcases 34 exquisite wood carvings that are the work of Professor Heider of Pietralba, Italy. They were sculpted from white pine and were originally painted. However, with generous donations they have since been restored to their natural wood state and placed in new housing.
