Vitrea Viridula

2.500,00€

“The rural area of Brazil where I spend most of the year is saturated with tales of UFO visitations. Most can be quickly debunked as airplanes etc. But there are times when we can’t discard them entirely. Once several members of the indigenous Guarani village a few kilometers away from my home sat they saw a glowing luminescent being with two tenacle-like arms floating through the forest. As they do not allow tourist to their Reservation anyway, I cannot possibly imagine what they would have to gain by fabricating a story like this.”
This sculpture is inspired by the local stories and specially by the alien like insects that Ithaka collects through his photography and drawings.
