The artist sees a massive block of stone

With an infinite number of statues imprisoned in it

Of which only one is destined to come to fruition.

His hammer and chisel are the sperm, his marble the egg.

Perhaps the marble is a uterus

And the hammer and chisel, labor pains.


Ogni blocco di pietra ha una statua dentro di sé ed è compito dello scultore scoprirla” – Michelangelo
(Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it)
