Spiritual Hero is a piece of work on about the concept of icons in contemporary culture.
 Replacing holy heads with those of super heroes, the artist Antonio Strafella makes us think about on the relation between sacred and profan, through the concept of "superman".
 In the case of the Jesus and Dart Fener's figure, for example, both die in order to preserve for preserving the life of their offspring: the greatest act of mercy.
These icons have various aspects in common: saints do miracles and superheroes have superpowers, both are venerated, opening the conflict between faith and zealotry. In contrast, there are is still some differences: saints were real people, whereas while superheroes are only imagined figures.
Each picture is associated with a Qr code of a Superhero videoclip and a sound recorder referring to the religious figure.
