Abstract: On July 9, 1944, the newly sculpted wooden statue representing St Sebastian saw the light of day in the streets of Qormi. This year marks the 75th anniversary of when the effigy was first taken out in procession amid the anticipation and fervour of the parishioners and devotees. The statue was sculpted by Valletta-born artist George Borg (1906-1983) whose artistic vision and technical bravura prevailed over competition and secured the commission.
