n. 167 The tower-house

This copper plate has been engraved thirty years ago but deserves a reinterpretation for the quality of the signs and for the subject matter. In this arid landscape without a well-defined horizon, the eye focuses on an abandoned building but shelter for a lush nature. The place, which was a refuge house, now appears inaccessible to us and this is the paradox that the author wishes to communicate. Few copies available.
