This collection is dedicated to the god Neptune, king of the seas. Neptune is a symbol for deepness and unconsciousness. Like in the collections “Work” and “Gold of the Earth” an invitation to deep inner questioning is present, with a more meditative attitude bound to abandon, in order to find the golden treasure hidden inside each one of us. To find the treasure we must plunge into the depths of the sea, metaphor of our dark side, facing all the risks that this entails, but the reward that awaits us is certain. Shape and color are related to the Yin side of the universe.
