n. 534 The man and his tree

On the same theme as the previous etching, the island, in its metaphorical dimension, is located in a hostile plain. Will it be to escape a danger, to the laws of the world or to bring out the solitude of the man perched on the tree at its top? Freedom of interpretation for everyone (the reinterpretation of the "Baron rampante" by Italo Calvino may be useful). Excluding any logic or moral concern, the author imagines a saving way for any mind open to a world linked to poetry and nature. The engraving is embellished with a bible paper that makes the atmosphere more elegant.Very few copies left.
