Gozitan blue Clay, 268x180x190 cm
Sound – Ġgantija II composed by Dr Mariella Cassar Cordina

The site of Ġgantija is synonymous with ritualised life, death and regeneration. The rawness of unfired Gozitan blue clay illustrates further the relationship between the ambience of the prehistoric temple and our physical association with the earth. The organic nature of the form is a metaphor for the temple and transmits its aura through its gigantic proportions. The sphere, with its rugged and agitated surface, alludes to the vastness and infinite forms which know neither beginning nor end, reminiscent of our ancestral birth.
