Madre is an object with poetic content, filled with references. Every aspect of light as a life-generating element is explored here: myths, statuettes, the movement of the heavenly bodies, the alternation of day and night. The upper hollow of the large luminous body of Madre contains a vase in frosted borosilicate glass, in which to place branches to create an elegant composition. The opening – which seems to interrupt the vase precisely at the centre – creates depth, making light reflect even when the lamp is off. There is something magical: the opening is a point of boundary and exchange between internal and external light, joined in a single image.
