B&W: Evolution

“I am convinced that we are stardust in transmutation. This means that we are a process of cosmic evolution and we are living a stage where with this brain and this flesh, we must be part of this transmutation of the universe”

-sculptor Jorge Jimenez Deredia

This work is part of the project “Genesis for peace” of Costa Rican artist Jorge Jimenez Deredia. The project is composed by various works with a set of sculptures that shows the process of life and creation, which originates with a sculpture of an egg or sphere and culminates with a female figure.

“Palacio de Iturbide” (Palace of Iturbide) was the only palatial residence that was built on four levels during the colonial times. It has a baroque style, and it was constructed with the traditional combination of quarry and red volcanic rock that characterize downtown buildings of that dates.

The work was commissioned to the architect Francisco Guerrero y Torres, who worked between 1779 and 1785.

It is considered a masterpiece of civil architecture of that period.
