Costa Rica

The Ars et Natura project in Costa Rica
In collaboration with the Costa Rica Tourism Board ICT and the association "Foreste per sempre", a group of italian artists travelled in the north of the Country, from the Pacific coast, going through central mountains, to get to the Atlantic coast. The project aims to portray Costa Rica's flora and fauna through sketches and paintings.

Vallée de Mai
oil on canvas cm 50 x 40
This place is like a green cathedral, a sacred and ancient place; I walk slowly, trying to be quiet, I don't want to invade the sacredness of this place with the sound of my footsteps... what an illusion! I just realized the sound of my footsteps is hardly perceptible compared with the rumble of the palm leaves rubbed against each others by the wind. A deafening noise, interrupted at times by the cracking of a branch falling from the mother plant. It's the voice of the forest singing to the tune of a musician called wind.
