This piece is a cast concrete with a black finnish. It is inspired by a prehistorical black stone axe found in Colombia by my father
It is a symbol of the familiar past that is revealed as part of my life; inspired by a prehistorical black stone ax found by my dad in Colombia; a first contact that changed my relation with the past. A piece that made me wonder where we come from and who were our ancestors.
The original Ax didn't have openings or texture, I added the openings as eyes looking at the past and also the future. The textures where made with objects that I found to create impresions in the surface as my own markings.
