Sancta. 1925.
Cappiello has often employed the sunburst effect as a graphic motif, but here it functions almost like a radiant halo that reflects light onto the bottle of liqueur. It's also a reference to the miracle of Faverney: in 1608, burning oil lamps caught fire at the abbey on a Sunday night. The next morning, monks found the church filled with smoke and flames surrounding the altar—but the monstrance they'd left out was now floating above the altar, and supposedly remained in suspension for 33 hours. Cappiello most certainly borrowed the form of this Catholic vessel to promote the wonderful liqueur.
