This work of the Greek artist Dimitris Alithinos, consultant of the Fetzer Institute, was created specifically for Global Gathering, and draws inspiration from the history of Assisi.
The maternal body of contemporary taste, carved in Carrara marble, expresses the free maternal love full of hope in the future and forgiveness for the past, consecrated not to the life of a single individual who comes to light, but to all humanity. The young session that caresses the belly with the world in the abdomen and the tenderness of the gesture, evokes the maternal body as a metaphorical site of love and responsibility towards every being, even towards the planet.
