This exquisitely detailed graphite drawing depicts Ouroboros in an unusual way. Ouroboros, in many cultures envisioned as a (world) serpent biting its own tail and devouring itself, is in fact an ancient philosophical concept describing the circularity of life and human history. It symbolizes unity, wholeness, infinity, cyclical time, immortality and perfection. To Emanuele, movement is the key characteristic of Ouroboros, as the universe consists of events, not objects. Hence, the upward flowing hair and the overall vibrancy in the work. Past’s hand on the left nearly touches Future’s hand on the right, while Present stares us squarely in the face. A mysterious fourth figure remains hidden from view yet is powerfully present. This work is laden with symbology and philosophical references, that progressively reveal themselves to the extent that the viewer’s insights grow.
