Self-portrait (each one of us)

2002 to 2008
Concrete and cast bronze
175 x 50 x 50 cm

The artist did molds of real bones with provenance from different dead people; then, he reproduced  each one of them in wax, adjusting them and creating the representation of a new subject in that sculpture. The weight of the concrete is used like a symbolic element. Equilibrium is a metaphor of struggle and resistance. Gravity reminds the spiritual weight that everyone supports and talks about fragility of our own life.
