Limestone, 1.50/1.50/1.20 m. Public Art Commission of Municipality of Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, EU, 2002.
The sculpture is designed for a park environment and was commissioned by the Portuguese Ministry of Culture and the Town Council of Caldas da Rainha.
Movement is at the heart of all processes existing in the universe. This sculpture symbolizes the passing movement in a form which is uninterrupted and transformed into energy, spinning smoothly in its three projections. Tri-Unity is a profound ancient symbol, containing within itself the unity of man, life and God. Every creation is subject to this universal law and acts in absolute harmony. The abstract symbolism of the sculpture is reduced to a sign, with the objective of being perceived emotionally. Its soft silhouette is in harmony with the park environment, which enhances its presence in three-dimensional space. Consisting of three intertwined elements carved in limestone, the work is poised and monumental, yet at the same time it has the intimate emanation and movement of a chamber work. It predisposes towards meditation and contemplation, pulsating and captivating.
The sculpture contains within it a philosophical principle which, presented abstractly, provides the possibility for personal interpretation. It creates its own atmosphere by connecting the park environment with the adjacent building. Its abstract presence supports the interface between the natural and urban elements of the city environment.
