Amanda Schaffer, M.F.A, M.A., has her master of fine arts in visual arts, and master’s in art and religion. She studied the Camino pilgrimage route during her graduate studies in fine art and art history. Her research focused on beeswax anatomical ex-voto objects that medieval pilgrims left at shrines. Schaffer has walked the Camino four times: three walks with her father and one solo journey. For each walk, she made beeswax objects to leave at sacred sites along the way.
