The immediate impact of this work donated to the Hospice by the artist lies in its extreme elegance. A magical atmosphere combined with the harmony of pure curving lines communicate the concepts of Maraniello’s work to perfection. A blend of the archaic and strongly contemporary, this sculpture can be viewed differently from all angles. From one side it recalls some enigmatic bird, from another – a musical instrument – or rather, a musical note ... a crotchet or quarter note ... the only note with the constant ring: do, do, do, do ut do.
