Artist: Aurelio Rodriguez Lopez

Land of Origin: Spain

This centerpiece tells us of two myths of man’s origin and condition, set in a contemporary real-world location: the Strait of Gibraltar, viewed from the Mediterranean Sea.

The Pillars of Hercules in the background represent the ambition to go further, the longing to find something bigger, and the courage to discover new worlds. The other, even more universal story is about the origins and evolution of mankind as a protagonist in this world.

In the triptych, the figure on the left panel arises from the depths of the Sea. Symbolically, this represents the birth of a newborn and also our origin on African soil. The male and female figures on the central panel embody masculinity and femininity, love and sexuality, which leads to procreation.

Aurelio says: “The more than two years of dedication to one single work (four years from start to finish) have been a unique experience that has enriched me as a person and as an artist. I have discovered that indeed there are no limits, but only challenges to be met and overcome.”


We use the highest possible, colour tested printing process in the IBEX ArtLab. The Master-Giclées are overseen by the artists themselves to ensure that they are exactly as the artists want them. All used materials for the Master-Giclées are acid-free, so they will not turn yellow or go brittle. We use archival pigment inks which have the longest lifespan of any ink currently known.

At IBEX, we believe in providing the highest quality Master-Giclées to match the high quality of our artists. All pieces are produced in our own print, varnishing and framing facilities in Germany. From start to finish each work of art is handled personally by a master printer with more than 20 years of experience in the fine arts.
