Sculpture – Artist Addé – The Cinnabar Fields

Although belonging to the Chinese culture, the cinnabar fields defines the field of sexuality both for symbolic and magic reasons.
They are, in fact, naming the mercury ore, regarded everywhere in the world as a strong mystery and a marvel of nature.
The mercury ore is found in deep red colour, considered as the colour of life itself, in connection with blood, the most dramatic fluid.
Then, mercury itself, the liquid metal is the source of many interrogations and wonders.

This colourful sculpture celebrates the many questions both, the ore, and the metal, have been surging since the origins of its discovery, until science could clarify the matter. As one of the strongest mysteries and and all time subject of both delight and fear, let us celebrate mercury!

    These pieces, this website, especially the sculpture, are very powerful and bring me to tears. I suspect it is the earthiness so apparent in this work. And your explanations add so much to the pictures. I am moved by them and so very impressed with what you are offering. Thank you for connecting with me via the Tovarysh Connection
