The aim of the exhibition is to present the project of this name by the Costarican sculptor Deredia to create nine sculptural complexes located in nine towns in the American continent: from Canada to Tierra del Fuego, and involving the United States of America, Mexico, Yucatan, Costa Rica, Colombia, Peru and Chile, it will constitute a common thread of ideas, linking peoples and legends, myths and traditions, life and symbols. The project is inspired by the pre-Colombian stone spheres built by the ancient Boruca Indians of Costa Rica about 2,000 years ago. The sphere symbolizes the transmutation of matter while the circle represents the human beings search for self. These two factors point to a unitary, global conception of existence and the universe, summoning the ancestral values inherent in Man. Deredia has analyzed and re-interpreted the importance of a symbol that is predominant in many cultures. He has also created a link between the spherical components of the nine sculptural complexes and the main constellations of the countries involved, by aligning the spheres with the stars.
