Regarding the sculptures above:
Symbolic representations similar to Minoan statues found on the island of Crete
(6000 a 2000 B.C.). This collection is made from precious materials, like gold
and gems. The reason why the work is done in gold is very simple. Due to the
size of the figures, the work is very similar to a miniature. In order to be able to
touch them as much as you want you need appropriate surfaces. Gold is the
best protection for the precious manufacturing, the chiseling and the carving in
bronze, and for your skin. The gems and the gold emphasize the classical and
antique character of the work. On one side, these statues follow sculptural
tradition and, on the other side, they innovate the tradition by the means of the
use of unprecedented technical skills, allowing a fuller range of nuances in the
gold surfaces from shiny to matte.
The seven sculptures refer to seven main colors which appear through precious
stones. They symbolize seven feelings or emotional stages, requirement for any
kind of creation, let it be artistic or human.
The orange stands for innocence and openness.
The rose pink stands for inspiration.
The blue stands for gestation.
The green stands for mothering and maturation.
The violet stands for respect, distance and reflection.
The yellow stands for satisfaction and for pride about the achieved work.
The red stands for rest, farewell and emancipation.
The name picadoras is an allegory to describe the dichotomy between
femaleness and maleness – a symbolic combination of the horn as
representation of maleness and the female torso in a single sculpture. The
following pictures show the single male elements.
