“Hymn To Stone” by FRANCESCO PARAMANANDA RUSSO
The sculpture I projected exalts the soul of the limestone, typical element of the magic Itria valley.The monument is made from steel, a contemporary element.
The work is composed by three vertical lines that embrace and raise the sacred stone revealing its power, its soul.
The three elements symbolize the perfection raising the being from stone.
Different religios reveal us this recurrent number: Christian trinity, the Hindu, the Maya, etc…
The composition of the work is minimal, simple and pure and reveals the Unity in a conscient All, in the interdipende of the elements.
This work is a message to increase the respect and to value the strength of nature.
I also projected this work as an offer to generous Puglia that has been hosting me for some years
