Il calice e la spada
In contrast with the words that the the Father, the Almighty Creator, addresses to Adam, Genesis (3:19): “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return."
In this archaic mythology, instead, the ground giving origins to all creatures is not dust, but life, like the Goddess creator.
The language of the Goddess - Marija Gimbutas
My journey to rediscover that ancient, peaceful and “gilanic” neolithic civilization, characterized by equality between the two sexes began in the Isle of Malta, where great architectural and sculptural traditions coexist with modern architecture, reflecting the dominance, of the aggressive invasion of ‘Kurgan’ people, warriors, whose strength led the ancient European culture, turning it from “gilanic” into androcratic and from matrilinear to patrilinear. Through my pictures I try to learn am ancient culture, using a symbolic language and focusing on the myth of the Great Goddess, whose traces today are inevitably mixing with the modern urban texture and it is impossible not to detect the contrast and, at the same time, the need for a return to our oldest human roots.
