Title:
Samaumas

Author:

Description:
The sculpture refers to the great Amazonian tree, whose name means “tree of life” or “stairway to heaven”. The indigenous people consider her as the “mother” of all trees. The pieces are arranged in a circle, as if each tree were a priestess of the forest, and in a circle of strength, they become one - the mother of all. The green quartz stone represents the “heart” of each tree and carries its healing and regenerative power, the metal represents the industrialization and mechanization of living beings. With the constant abuses of man against nature, is it necessary for it to stand up and react? Or like the Amazonian “Samaumeira” that irrigate the soil and is capable of support other animals, will human beings be able to unite in a great force and will finally understand that we are all one?
