From the interweaving of countless lines, energy spreads out through: through Alcantara visual and sensory features, the installation expresses the aesthetic vision of the author and his concept of Beauty.
The art piece represents the “New Kazari-uma”, a modern version of the traditional Kazari-uma, which means “decorated horse” and is a typical craft of Japanese culture, always represented with beautiful harness and trapping.
The piece is a representation of Brazilian indigenous tribe’s headdress adorned by feathers manmade with Alcantara: the cockade (headdress) is the most extravagant and representative accessory of the indigenous tribes in the Amazon used till today in ceremonies, rituals and cultural events.
Alcantara is the true heart of the project. “It helped the piece to become alive”, said the author. “What I liked the most about it was that obscure dim glint that gives a fossil kind of feeling to the project.
The sculpture is an ambiguous entity that combines contradictive values: natural, unique phenomena and technological, precise processes; chaos and regularity; abstraction and functionality.
