The set of photographs, in black and white, displays significant cuts; selected images depict the necessary delicacy, strength of the materials used. “…stones that are meat, fabric, foundation, sound, breath, dream and imagination, "says Vanessa Bortulucci.

The funerary art is a creative representation that seeks to provide a re-interpretation of the contrast between life and death.

These works begin to be seen as works of art, since these works have a strong artistic bias, cultural and museum.

The sensitivity of the sculptor is an indispensable factor in trying to convey affection through the work embedded in stone. "In each sculpture, there is the honor of the living to the living - for only to them is reserved the task, sweet and terrible, to remember ", says curator.

"How beautiful can be the representation of a pain? can, because she was a last homage to someone who was loved ".
