Art of Memory

Messy anonymous monoliths sprouting from earth’s Lembi; agglomerates of tombstones leaning against the ancient country churches; imposing mausoleums that celebrate the glory of great men; essential and unadorned burial areas or real open-air museums. Cemeteries are chests of culture, art and memory, places of eternal rest with decadent charm, in which the awareness of the transience of human life is combined with the desire for eternity.

Funerary sculpture tells pain and hope with great delicacy, invites meditation and meditation, silently and motionlessly watches over the sleep of the extinct loved ones and comforts those who remain.
The stone collects shreds of stories near and far, echoes of existences swallowed up by time.
