Description

The large sculpture represents the culmination of a meditation that the artist had been carrying out since the early 1940s. The Great Genesis is the result of a long reflection in which the artist elaborates the main themes that he addressed in all his works : the affections, the nostalgia and the bond between mother and child. The importance of the theme addressed is also evident in the choice of large sizes of the sculpture and the mighty image becomes an emblem of motherhood. The magic of the transforming body and the wonder of this change are evident in the graceful pose of the woman who collects her hair by lifting it upwards, as if to show the beauty of her shapely body.
