Convivium was a project of Cardus 2011‑2022, and is preserved here for archival purposes.


Photographer Linda Couture's piece inspires the viewer with a sense of awe and heavenly reverence as the scale of the structure reminds us of our need to always, always, rise.

"So we rise," the sculpture beckons us, arms stretched the length of their span. The splayed hand, the bowed head, the precision with which a ribcage has been wrought - reminders of man's simultaneous fragility and resiliance. And so, just as we rise, we bow our heads as the beauty before us prompts us in turn towards the sacred.
