Stairs to Heaven, spine of its surrounding
Everyone is concerned about matters of life and death. Through History we symbolized the sky as the world of the deceased and made its access a poetic theme. Its most symbolic materialization is the stairway to Heaven as the passage from one world to another.
When you approach the stairs, you look up at the airy, well dimensioned structure and see it disappear into the sky, making it seem possible to ascend this space forever. But the physical incapacity to reach it reminds us how alive we are and forces us to come back to Earth and enjoy being here.
I understood lately that the passage from a world to another should not be destructive for its surrounding, but make it stronger and unified. The stairs become then the spine of the proto-structure by bracing it, from the larger foundation to the narrow steps of its head.
