Painting: Oil on Wood.
The sphere is a symbol of the archetypal spirit. Having neither beginning and nor end, the circular shape suggests a power of simultaneous expansion and concentration. The imaginative part of the spirit can be indeed considered unlimited, and this imaginative and creative part will go all the more far as it will be able of a bigger concentration. So the concentration’s power of the reflection, the meditation, and the imagination, engender a power of correlative expansion.
The sphere is also symbol of absolute, and is the least rational geometrical figures. That means it is also the flight towards the irrational.
The fact that the sphere is no more in touch with any finger of the hand indicates that the spirit is like imperceptible. The attitude of the face in the sphere show that it is in the serene meditation that the spirit takes off, frees itself from heavinesses of materiality. Water symbolizes here this materiality, where the movements of the spirit are although possible, but with more heaviness. The attitude of the hand shows that she agrees to this flight, that she follows the moose of the spirit which takes off. At the same time this hand is opened to receive, to welcome. To notice the contrast between the hot tone of face and hand, with the cool tones of water; and also the whiteness which is felt as a deep silence, soothing and full of possibilities..
