A FAMILY OF MONSTERS, THIS FASCINATING COLLECTION OF TOTAL BLACK SCULPTURES IS CREATED IN COLLABORATION WITH THE GREATEST APULIAN MASTERS OF CERAMICS, THE COLÌ BROTHERS. THE WORKS ARE INSPIRED BY MEDIEVAL BESTIARIES, IN A HISTORY PRIOR TO THAT OF THE RENAISSANCE, WHERE UGLINESS AND CHAOS WERE PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE. OVER TIME THESE FRIGHTENING CREATURES HAVE BECOME SOME SORT OF TALISMANS, CAPABLE OF PROTECTING THOSE WHO OWNED THEM. RESUMING THE STUDIES ON MEDIEVAL "GRILLI" WE FOCUSED ON THE WORD "INCREASE" THAT ACCOMPANIED THESE AMULETS. SO WE HAVE ENDOWED EACH OF OUR MONSTERS IN OUR COLLECTION WITH THEIR OWN VALUES AND VIRTUES THAT INCREASE THE POTENTIAL AND ABILITIES OF THOSE WHO RELY ON THEM.

THE THREE-HEADED TOTEM IS MADE TO BE PLACED AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE HOUSE, AS A SYMBOL OF PROTECTION.IT TAKES UP THE ORIENTAL TRADITION OF THE DVARAPALA (SANSKRIT) IS A DOOR OR GATE GUARDIAN OFTEN PORTRAYED AS A WARRIOR OR FEARSOME GIANT, USUALLY ARMED WITH A WEAPON - THE MOST COMMON BEING THE GADHA MACE. IN MOST SOUTHEAST ASIAN LANGUAGES THESE PROTECTIVE FIGURES ARE REFERRED TO AS DVARAPALA. DVARA (SANSKRIT DVARA) MEANS GATE, AND PALA (SANSKRIT PaLA) MEANS PROTECTOR.
