Master of your own destiny
Master of your own destiny personifies the citizen of a free nation, carving and forging his own destiny, on the foundation, that the Political Constitution of his Republic offers him through the guarantee of his individual rights and the fulfillment of his obligations. "Only in this manner will he achieve his greatest purposes in peace with justice."
All citizens have a dream: a homeland that makes us feel proud of ourselves, united and integrated, regardless of economic level, language, cultural level, and, above all, race. We must only find the common denominator that unites us all in the same purpose:
"A BETTER HOMELAND FOR OUR CHILDREN."
THE CONCEPT OF IDENTITY OF THE HUMAN BEING
The human being is rational, pursues goals of different kinds, longs to be free and independent, possesses will, wants to live, seeks his own happiness and dreams of prosperity. All these natural characteristics of man are common to all humanity and define his own identity.
It is the place where Man must become more man, that is, more virtuous. In cities, as in Greece and Rome of Antiquity, man had as an ideal to become a better human being, practicing virtues such as: WISDOM, JUSTICE, STRENGTH AND TEMPERANCE, pillar virtues that respond to the survival and peaceful coexistence of individuals within society. The Constitutional Republic, based on freedom, has proven to be the best system of government known to man. Under its auspices it can encourage and incentivize the practice of such virtues, through the protection of the rights of the individual:
THE RIGHT TO LIFE
THE RIGHT TO PROPERTY
THE RIGHT TO THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.
FREEDOM is the fundamental requirement for the development of the individual, enjoying his INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, FULFILLING ALL ITS OBLIGATIONS.
All the natural characteristics of man are common to all mankind. Why not create a new common identity for the Citizen; universal, powerful, heroic; that defines women and men equally? What do all citizens want for us, for our children and for our country? Create an identity with a sense of triumph; a sense of life with which everyone can and has the opportunity to achieve the objectives and goals that he FREELY CHOOSES, under the auspices of a constitution that guarantees him the full exercise of his individual rights and demands at the same time his obligations.
Every human being who values his own life has as a common denominator to fight to improve it. Therefore, this NEW IDENTITY should express a powerful, heroic idea of themselves and of the entire City and Nation, united and perfectly integrated, regardless of economic level, language, cultural level and, especially, race.
LET US ACHIEVE THROUGH FREEDOM A WORLD INTEGRATED BY ALL CITIZENS, SHAPING AND CARVING EACH ONE HIS OWN DESTINY, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE A BETTER FUTURE!
EMBODYING THE NEW IDENTITY
The ultimate goal of a COLOSSAL SCULPTURAL MONUMENT representing the ideal identity of the citizen is to express the highest values and virtues of the human being. The naked truth should be reflected as the foundation of the ideal image that the person seeks. Love of one's own life, perseverance and excellence will be essential elements that define this new identity. The identity of the good citizen will be one who practices the cardinal virtues of: JUSTICE AND INTEGRITY. These values will be expressed through MASTER OF YOUR OWN DESTINY.
As an essential symbol will be used a COLOSSAL GIANT OF ONE HUNDRED METERS, which carves itself, expressing in this way THE INDEPENDENCE OF THOUGHT AND ITS WILL WITH WHICH IT CONTROLS AND FORGES ITS OWN DESTINY, BEING ABLE TO DESIGN IN THIS WAY ITS FUTURE.
LIFE is represented by its very vitality and by the action it exerts to preserve and improve it.
FREEDOM is symbolized by the action he is exerting by carving himself and being able to emerge from the rock.
JUSTICE (to each what he deserves) for the action taken by not asking anyone for help.
INTEGRITY (loyal to its own principles) by the consequent action of acting according to its own morality, there is no evasion of reality.
PURPOSE (achieving your highest goals and dreams) is represented by the level of punctual focus and concentration of his features.
FREEDOM OF THOUGHT symbolized by his intelligent action in carving the rock from which he emerges, as he is thus forging himself and his own destiny.
UNIVERSALITY is represented in the fact that he wears no hair and the spherical shape of his skull.
EQUITY in our multicultural society is communicated by the amestized face.
THE STRENGTH OF CHARACTER for its powerful anatomical features and incisive determination.
SELF-ESTEEM by the delicacy with which it carries out the action and the establishment that it is worth achieving its highest values.
REASON is represented in his face of intelligent look and focused on the action he exercises with the highest competence, knowing perfectly what he does.
LET'S MAKE OUR HOMELAND A GREAT NATION! OF WHICH ALL CITIZENS CAN BE PROUD. LET'S MAKE OUR HOMELAND A PLACE WHERE OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN LIVE GLORIOUSLY, IN PEACE!

Artistic evolution is a natural process that occurs as creators gain knowledge, experience, and a deeper understanding of their craft. In this blog post, we will explore the evolution of my works, focusing on the enrichment of anatomical knowledge, a better understanding of ideal proportions, and the pursuit of aesthetic harmony through geometric compositions.
Enriching Anatomical Knowledge:
One of the primary aspects of my artistic evolution has been the enrichment of my anatomical knowledge of the human form. Over the years, through extensive study and observation, I have deepened my understanding of human anatomy. This knowledge has played a crucial role in my ability to approach the ideal proportions that can best express a heroic vision of mankind.
Initially, I depicted human figures with proportions based on 7.5 heads. However, as I gained more knowledge and experience, I quickly transitioned to using 8 heads. Today, after three decades of professional sculpting practice, I have achieved a milestone of 8.5 heads. This advancement not only involves reducing the size of the skull in relation to the body's height but also discovering the correct proportion of each limb for both ideal men and women.
Understanding Ideal Proportions:
With an enhanced knowledge of anatomy, I have also evolved in my understanding of ideal proportions. The pursuit of capturing the essence of the human form led me to delve deeper into the harmonious relationships between different body parts. It is through this exploration that I have discovered the correct and balanced proportions for each element of the ideal human figure.
By striving for ideal proportions, I aim to convey a sense of beauty and strength in my sculptures. The human body, when proportioned correctly, possesses a captivating aesthetic appeal that evokes admiration and awe. Through my artistic evolution, I have become more proficient in capturing these harmonious and visually pleasing proportions, allowing my sculptures to embody the true essence of humanity.
Achieving Aesthetic Harmony through Geometric Compositions:
In addition to anatomical advancements, my artistic evolution has also manifested in my compositional techniques. Over time, I have sought to achieve greater aesthetic harmony by integrating each individual part into a universal whole.
My early works often relied on simple compositions, focusing primarily on the subject itself. However, as I honed my skills and expanded my artistic repertoire, I began exploring the potential of geometric compositions. These compositions involve arranging various elements in a way that creates a visually pleasing and harmonious balance. By integrating geometric forms into my sculptures, I aim to enhance the overall aesthetic experience and create a deeper connection between the artwork and its viewer.
The evolution of my works has been marked by significant advancements in my understanding of human anatomy, the pursuit of ideal proportions, and the exploration of geometric compositions. Through continuous learning, observation, and three decades of dedicated practice, I have refined my ability to express the heroic vision of mankind by embodying harmonious proportions and aesthetic unity in my sculptures.
As an artist, I understand that evolution is a lifelong journey. I eagerly look forward to further exploration, growth, and refinement of my skills as I continue to push the boundaries of my artistic expression. The evolution of my works serves as a testament to the power of dedication, continuous learning, and the transformative nature of artistic pursuit.
