In the contemporary time and space, in which the anxieties of the last century spread their shadow over our present, in which the consumer society suffocates us and minimizes existence, we ought to try it out for a spiritualized existence, in which the material and everything deriving from our acute needs related to it pass on a secondary plan, in favor of cultivating the real values.
We often surprise ourselves by searching or/and discovering images that, because déjà, plays an important role in our subconscious, come out. Thus, we make connections in the sense of the idea of an approach to "heaven", even if this is not a purpose in itself in the world we live in.
The symbolism of the Centre, so important in mythology, finds itself also in the man preoccupied by the sacred, but also in the one preoccupied by the profane / secular.
The central axis of the world, in the past, the center of existence, finds itself for us, today, somewhere, in the place we occupy in the profane space. Survival in contemporary society, the idea to build, otherwise eternal, becomes more important than the idea of center itself. Thus, building ourselves, we rebuilt the Good, the Truth, the Beauty.
