Vanity of the beauty

Terracotta, 41 x 25 x 23 cm

Vanité de la Beauté

There are two extraordinary texts in the Old Testament :the Song of Solomon and the Ecclesiastes (Kohelet). Everyone knows the Ecclesiastes, this text that deals with the vanities of this world and whose first sentence is : « Vanity of Vanities, all is Vanity ». (Ecclesiastes means : ‘the one who tells’)

I worked on the Vanities, a subject still so actual in our century, where the prevalence of the form on the substance, the outside on the inside becomes increasingly evident each day.
