Long Description:
The Andres Institute of Art is a huge sculputre park consisting of several miles of trails leading up to the summit of Potanipo Hill. It has over 100 sculptures lining the trails. Most of them are abstract.

This sculpture is called The Beginning of the World by Ana Maria Negara.

About the artist:

"The universe that Ana Maria Negara creates through the mirroring of the inner towards the interior, denotes an impressive accumulation of cultural knowledge for such an young artist but also a fascination, knowingly pursued, for understanding, capturing and reformulating an old repertoire of symbols and meanings. Nothing is by chance in this installation, where philosophy and metaphysics enter in a complex game of interaction with the inner-self of the viewer. The contradictory meanings confuse him, therefore his return to the stability of the wand, thus controlled, assures him the continuity of the adventure. It is only one possible interpretation, extremely synthetic, of what lives and is being offered by the young artists in her piece. Therefore, we can place the typology of the expression in the realm of “philosophical sculpture”, conceptual, which owes its existence to the new standards of contemporary art."
