Artistic creation has long been associated with divine gifts and inspirations. The transformation of symbolically "mortal" materials into sacred, transcendent forms, with a magical and spiritual feeling, gave the sculptor an almost divine status which, like the creator with its creature, created from nothing, a new being, often idealized, perfecting what Nature had as imperfect. Thus, we can say that the artist has in its hands the power to make appear, to reveal what is already in the material, to be the driving force of transformation, and thus, to give birth to a new experience that derived from many others.
The stone as a matter of creation, concentrates in itself the balance between the instant and the infinite, between its rapid capacity for change and the petrified form. Each view is consumed by an energy that invades and modifies it. It becomes a softened body, but still on its way to ascend. The essence of its original form remains and is passed onto new forms that take over it, giving the stone a new life, a new image.
This sculpture unveils that moment of creation, taking matter as the theme of the work. Its compact and ambiguous form invites the speculation of new images and figures, of new symbols, of new creations. As Pygmalion, we become artists, anxiously awaiting the moment of its transformation into something real, of its inexplicable, yet so desired, metamorphosis.
