An attempt to reflect what our body represents for the different religions and cultures of the world. What is our function in this life? Are we something more than flesh? What happens to our feelings when they leave our body? Do we have a soul? Bodies of flesh, but elevated as souls, in a clean atmosphere that gives us a sensation of deep breathing.

The story of the battle between Hercules and the centaur Nessus had to be seen from a different viewpoint from the art, to create the sculptures of this battle. You can see many statues that represent this moment. The aesthetic vision of painting tries to play between the figurative and the abstract. Creating confusion for the viewer, this is a controlled chaos, in which the observer needs to take time to reconstruct the image.
