The exhibition shows sculptures of saints whose beauty and expressiveness still fascinate. In addition to numerous statues of saints and their stories, the Palm donkey of Steinen from 1055, the Madonna of Raron from 1150 and a Romanesque figure of Mary, which is considered to be the forerunner of the statue of grace of Maria of the Abbey of Einsiedeln, are also on display. The exhibition gives insight into the diverse world of the saints, their legends, miracles and the traditions of Christianity.
