BANCAL

Synopsis

Each stone that constitutes the stone wall is indispensable. Master Santiago knows it well. He chooses them carefully with strength and intelligence, and then moulds them by smoothing out their edges. This is how he transcribes the representation of a revealed idea.

His gesture is modest, imperceptible before the immensity of Cosmos; a constant search for the meaning of transition. He leaves traces on the path before he evanesces into Nature. It’s an Act of Faith that will traverse time.
