In the art book Laying on of Hands the Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen elaborates on the term "laying on of hands" through paintings, drawings, ceramic works and private photographs. The title refers to the transfer of divine life-force through ritual touching. In many regions the laying on of hands takes place in connection with consecration, initiation and sacrificial rites, the exorcism of evil spirits and the healing of the sick.
Historical accounts, works of fiction and mythological material combined with personal memory often form the point of departure for the work of Cathrine Raben Davidsen.
