Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

"It represents a dialogue between one of the greatest artist of the Renaissance, like Leonardo, and one of the most important artists of the past century in China. In other words, it's the artist of the past, from the Renaissance, talking with the artist of the recent Chinese past. It's also a philosophical dialogue.”

The dialogue between China and the West is one of the common themes in the exhibit, titled "Sculpting the soul of a nation.” Wu Weishan also delves into the suffering of his homeland, sculpting images of the Nanjing massacre, and the cruelty at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army.

"It was a tremendous massacre against the Chinese people in 1937, by the Japanese. It's estimated that nearly 300,000 people died in Nanjing, including children.”

Wu Weishan took sculpting classes in Europe and the United States, which opened up new horizons for him, creatively speaking. His works are open to experimentation. Since 1998, his sculptures have been displayed in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea and the Netherlands.
