« III / IV OZT ≈ » calls to mind the stone sentinels that once stood guard over the temples of the Nile, capturing the divine light of the sun with their pyramidion gleaming with pure gold.
Its base, carved from Brazilian geen victoria marble, evokes solidity and eternity, much like the Earth which, unyielding, watches life succeed one another on its surface. The deep green of this marble reflects the wild forests, the marine abysses, life in all its splendor and complexity.
Yet the mystery lies in this golden pinnacle, this pyramidion that appears to defy the laws of time and space, floating above its foundation. It is like a metaphor for the human soul, ever in search of elevation, of a higher place, closer to the heavens.
« III / IV OZT ≈ » articulates Man’s struggle between his earthly roots and this longing to touch the infinite, to draw nearer to the star that shines within each of us.
