Description

The great sculpture represents the culmination of a meditation that the artist carried on already in the early 1940s. The Great Genesis is the result of a long reflection in which the artist elaborates the main themes he tackled in all his works : affections, nostalgia and the bond between mother and child. The importance of the subject tackled is also evident in the choice of the great measures of sculpture and the powerful image becomes the emblem of motherhood. The magic of the body that transforms itself and the wonder of this change are evident in the graceful pose of the woman who gathers her hair by raising it upwards, as if to show the beauty of her shapely body.
