pictures from project Memento Paradisi
An ebony log is cut into eight slices, each partially polished and gilded on the reverse side.
Each slice is numbered.
Memento Paradisi (literally: "in memory of ebony") speaks of ebony, decimated by the unconsciousness of man. Other hands today celebrate its nature and magnify its qualities, for other men and women.
And then the discreet reflection of gold on the wall: an aura, a halo?
