Gola Hundun wall in Prunetta (Pistoia) 2020-09-14

Gola Hundun wall in Prunetta (Pistoia)

Gola Hundun‘s latest painting in Prunetta (Tuscany), produced by Maeba is a wish for a new life. It is named “Cernunnos” (*) as this God is depicted in a microscopic vision of a Vegetative Apex, the first cell ever.Cernunnos shows the concept of life and re-birth through a tan egg-shaped by leaves and vegetation.

The new birth is dedicated to the mountain which becomes a valuable presence capable of rebuilding the metaphoric path between human beings and Nature. At the top of the painting, you can find a blue horned shape where you can read both the vegetative apex and Cernunnos silhouette. The overlapping of them is the top of the egg, a peak to reach, and can be read as a way to re-connect life and Nature in our everyday life.

The installation of a nest made of clay (hand-modeled and hand-painted by Gola) on the wall is an artistic action to underline the concept of new birth, a nest in the egg that may contain new eggs. It is a way to speak about the importance of coexistence and to transform the wall paint itself in a living being, a microhabitat.

 

The message behind A different world is possible. Let’s work together for it!

(*)Cernunnos is the conventional name given in Celtic studies to depictions of the “horned god” of Celtic polytheism. However, It seems that the “horned” god was a pre-Celtic deity of shamanic origin worshiped throughout the Indo-European continent. He is the god of nature, fertility, hunting and wildlife.The Horned God reflects the seasons of the year in an annual cycle of life, death, and rebirth.
