Interview with the author

The Project

Arcadia. With reference to the homonymous Greek region, which was fabled by bucolic poets, a pleasant landscape, a scenery for an idyllic life.

Essential, archaic, pure, a prehistoric form, an evergreen archetype, the sphere represents the “belly”,
a welcome, the roundness, the feminine, the zero, the field for all possibilities.
Its decoration “the Riccio/the hedgehog” is reinterpreted by retrieving an ancient sacred mandala with the aim of representing the “seed”, the origin, the masculine, the first prince, the reproductive gem.

The belly guards and the seed gets reproduced, in turn generated by a belly that welcomes and by a seed that activates the mysterious force generating the energy of life that is repeated in a temporal unicum that has neither beginning nor end. Mystery and sacredness.

A tribute to the encounter of the feminine and masculine, to the “union”, to the sacredness of grafting, to the “welcome”, to the beauty of life and its mystery.

Dedicated to all the “sacred” lives of this land..
