Title of the project:"Sacred water"

Concept:"The elements for the sculpture are central circles as a simbol of the sacred water, there will be a round glass piece in the center of the circle. The stairs carved in one of the edges of the block mean the possibility to clim up from your mind, from your soul. The stairs change the visual proportion of the piece since the central part becomes a temple to visit !!! And finally a third element that can be a hidden treasure , a chair, or a door to access somewhere ... "
