Where a body shape can show the beauty of life in the branch of a tree.
I am still working on this piece, but I realized since the beginning, carving the wood, how amazing is that the circles of the growth are in perfect harmony with the shapes of the body. And what is more considerable is that where the curves of the statue are unfinished or wrong, the lines are wavering too. In other words the more the figure is aesthetically pleasant and perfect, the more the lines of the tree are fluid and beautiful.
This is also the evidence that harmony and beauty pervade the whole universe with no exception, what we perceive in the beauty of a starry night sky is the same feeling that we get by looking at the perfect animals wether that is a panther, an eagle, a shark, a flower, or a human body. Every organism is constantly searching to be in harmony with the harmonious Cosmos.
– This is the title of an essay I started to write few years ago. Hopefully the first part of it will be completed shortly and published as a paper book and on my blog. To anyone that may be interested in reading it.-
Excerpt from: “A Different Evolution”.
“Long before the time when humans used to worship the sun, offering bloody sacrifices or considering it a divine entity, the primordial vegetable cells were already aware of it as a source of energy that could have been exploited through very complex biochemical processes in order to make matter to build up organisms and synthesize many other new substances for a number of needs.
Meanwhile “we”, the intelligent and superior species, still nowadays think of them just as vegetables, eatable or decorative plants, greens, salads, weeds, fences, flowers and whenever some of us falls into an almost lifeless coma, we call that a “vegetetive state” as if plants were neither intelligent or even really living beings. This is how deep is our ignorance and inability to comprehend the evidences of the reality.
