Camino Steps 1 – art print on canvas
Along the Camino the pilgrim connects with history, changing landscapes, people, places and symbols. These create deep and lasting impressions. In the painting series “Camino Steps“, the artist Marc Heffner takes up themes, icons and places along the Camino de Santiago.
During centuries of pilgrimage the scallop shell developed into the symbol of the Camino de Santiago. With the possession of the scallop shell, the medieval pilgrims proved their arrival. The scallop shell also acts as a metaphor. The grooves in the shell, which come together at a single point, represent the various routes pilgrims travelled, eventually arriving at a single destination: Santiago de Compostela.
