The concept comes from the Greek Mythology, where the nymph Daphne, pursued by the god Apollo, invoked her mother (Gea, the Mother Earth) for help. To escape the god, she was transformed into a laurel tree. Consequently Apollo decided to wear his head with a crown made by leaves coming from the tree‘s branches. This crown became symbol of knowledge, through which it’s possible to save the nature.
In “Save me” the laurel’s leaves create a ring that, arising from the water, stands up towards the sky. The leaves (shaped like seeds, similar to rice grains) have faculty to create and transform energy from the light (like seeds have memory and energy inside to make life).
The ring is made by concrete (cement and steel), coloured with a light green patina and pigments mixed with cement; 2000 cm diameter, 400 cm depth.
