n. 528 An ephemeral construction

Engraved in 2006, this etching represents a construction that looks like a huge jewel box, or a reliquary, created to seduce the observer thanks to a dazzling architecture and a lush vegetation. Or conceived to transport us to an imaginary and unusual world, where Beauty dominates. Looking more closely, we see a construction site on the left and, on the right, the dissolution building. This is the metaphor of our lives, where mens born, live and disappear.
