The important dimensions of the work want to highlight the vastness of the space and involve the observer in listening to an amplified interior silence dictated by a foggy blanket profuse in the raptor, emblem of a part of the population suffering from loneliness. The presence of two ornithological figures, not very evident and arranged on the sides, are the pivotal and poetic point of the picture that refutes the thought of solitude.
It was precisely following the metabolisation of a speech and the meeting with the actress Sandra Milo that the artist Zancano inspired the creation of the work, reworking the precious testimony and his wisdom when he affirmed “we are never alone”, even when the scars of life lead to pessimistic thinking. The ornithological representation refers to a positive thought and a false loneliness.
The oil colours used in the painting are soft and essential to highlight a gloomy mood.
The addition of a thin layer of silver leaf symbolises the cold internal dryness and, at the same time, creates a refined elegance. The semiprecious stones used (Hawkeye and Black Jade) are positioned in correspondence with the pupils of the three birds.
