Pelekus, from the ancient Greek ax, recalls a macabre beak. Pressed against the chest, smashes the fish into the membrane bag. The image that weighs the cost to feed the little ones inspired the symbol of Christ pouring blood for the redemption of men. The pelican is also elevated to emblem of charity. In the work, the reflection is a time mirror and a lens to give another look. The pelican moves from left to right, from water to tree, from above to below. What you see reflected is not always equal to the start’s point. It depends on who looks at it and what it is looking for.
