In this piece the artist uses wood to create a simple and harmonious sculpture which rises up to a great height, suggesting a prayer. The sculpture rests on a solid base of rough cork oak, modelled by the whims of nature, which represents the earthly anchor of the winged form rising up in prayer above it. This combination of different, contrasting forms creates tensions and unsuspected contradictions. Saliences and convexities which hold the gaze give rise to a wide variety of perspectives. Shadows and other effects of the light caused by the characteristics of the sculpture itself evoke the contradictions of the human condition. However, the stance of the main sculptural element dominates the whole, conferring on the entire sculpture an individual and unique mystical identity. This piece is contained in the sculpture catalogue of the Albuquerque e Lima Gallery, where it is available for purchase.
