Exorcist's Dali Sculpture

A sculpture of Christ that Salvador Dali gave to his exorcist has been found among the belongings of a deceased Italian priest. Father Gabriele Maria Berardi, the founder of a charitable order, said before he died that Dali had given him the sculpture of Christ on a wooden cross after the artist had been exorcised by him. The Italian priest emigrated to France in the 1940s and carried out exorcisms there. The sculpture was found among his belongings in the cellar of a house in Rome. Father Gabriele's order said it planned to sell the statue to raise money for its charity work. For the full story - click the title Irish Art
