Description

LIMITED EDITION OF 50 PIECES: DELIVERED IN 10 DAYS

THE VOLCANO IS CONSIDERED AS THE SOURCE OF EARTHLY FIRE, ONE THAT IS ANTITHETICAL TO THE CELESTIAL ONE. IT REPRESENTS CHAOS AS A COMBINATION OF ELEMENTS, WHICH ARE MIXED UNDERGROUND AND THEN TRANSFORMED INTO PRIMARY ELEMENTS: AIR, FIRE, WATER AND EARTH. THE VOLCANO EXPRESSES THE PRIMORDIAL FORCE OF NATURE AND IT IS A CHTHONIC AND AMBIVALENT SYMBOL, WHICH IS ON ONE SIDE ASSOCIATED WITH DEATH AND ON THE OTHER WITH FERTILITY . IT ALSO PRESENTS ITSELF AS AN ELEMENT OF DESTRUCTION BUT AT THE SAME TIME AS A PRODUCER OF CREATIVITY, CHARACTERIZED BY A SPECIAL FERTILITY.

CULTURALLY, THE IMAGE OF THE VOLCANO HAS DIFFERENT CONNOTATIONS. IN SOME CULTURES, IT REPRESENTS THE GATES OF THE UNDERWORLD, THEREFORE IT WAS TRADITION TO PUSH THE DEAD INTO ITS CRATER. THE ANCIENT GREEKS BELIEVED THAT VOLCANIC ACTIVITY WAS LINKED TO THE VICTORY OF THE GODS OVER THE TITANS, WHILE IN THE ROMAN MYTHOLOGY, VULCANO WAS THE GOD OF FIRE ASSOCIATED TO THE NATURAL PHENOMENA OF VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, THE DIVINE SYMBOL OF NATURE’S DESTRUCTIVE POWER.
