Mìnera inspirational trove

Working on Mìnera drawings was entering the minerals world’s un-achievable perfection in asymmetry and incongrous combinations, yet with such a vivid and innate preciosity. As much as approaching yoga symbolism met with my respect and lack of authority to think and challenge with yantra and mandala. Nevertheless, even if inspired in some way by these, I felt quite confident thinking about different references as a valuable background for inspiration. Unconsciuos or posthumous intuitions from another visual culture.

I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as a plant and rose to be an animal, I died as an animal and I was Man. Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?

— Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
