Part of Silent Soul Project a Figurative Wood Sculpture by Oriano Galloni
The Silent Souls are Galloni’s three-dimensional interpretations of the process of spiritual purification. In form and concept they resemble trees, rooted to the material realm and reaching towards the heavens. The wood represents a natural form – a material that moves, breaks and ages like skin upon which a serene spirituality can be built. The contrasting pure white stone is presented as a material that exists in eternity and symbolizes the essence of the soul.
