Giuseppe Rivadossi (Nave, 8 July 1935)
Piccola Arca in Linden wood
10 x 32.5 x 22.5 cm
work conceived and performed by Maestro Giuseppe Rivadossi
Archetypal image of great beauty that reflects both the thought and one of the themes dearest to the Maestro.
The Ark, a biblical vessel built on the instructions of Noah, designed to save and preserve the human species and all living beings, is one of Giuseppe Rivadossi's favorite themes.
His "Arches" have welcoming shapes, they are guardians of life, they cradle it, they recall ancestral seeds ready to germinate, bursting the vitality they contain... or perhaps space ships to save humanity and take it to safer places.
