This piece should be played very expressively as indicates the musical command (“molto espressivo”).
The Christ is reaching for his mother with one hand and he is supporting his own existence with the other one. A cadenza takes the place of “INRI”.
Inspired by Giotto’s Christ on the Cross that I saw in the Cappella degli Scrovegni in Padova some months ago.
The Sketchbook Project Limited Edition 2012 (Theme: Thread and surface / Title: Sempre Legato)
About this sketchbook project
The dolls’ parts were carefully assembled with needle and thread. I used one unique thread to sew all dolls – the thread runs throughout the whole sketchbook, binding the dolls’ limbs with the rest of the body and at the same time binding each story with the next one.
