The Holy Chalice of Valencia is captivating visitors by it’s beauty, it’s perfect and exceptional shape, the details in gold, the pearls and the precious gems. The RELIC is the upper part, which is a cup of dark brown agate finely polished. The handles came later as well as the chalice's stem made of exquisitely engraved gold.
My painting, reveals the road of The Holly Grail of Valencia. During the Muslim invasion, since 713 AD, the chalice was hidden in the Pyrenees region, after having been in the caves of Yebra, Siresa, Santa María de Sasabe (today San Adrián), Bailio, in the monastery of San Juan de la Peña (Huesca) and finally to Valencia Cathedral where it can be visited nowadays. Parts of some of those places, are displayed on the canvas.
