Piece inspired by the ex-votos, also known as ‘miracles’. The offering of ex-votos originates in the tributes that people of the Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilisations presented to their gods.
Later the symbol was borrowed by Catholicism and the ex-voto became an offering by the faithful as appreciation for a gift or miraculous healing.
According to the Spanish dictionary, ‘respiro’ means:
1. pause for breath taken in the midst of an activity or crisis; 2. relief from fatigue, sorrow or pain.
Indeed popular wisdom identifies the physical act of breathing with relief and respite, RESPIRO is a reminder of that necessary pause.
