Averters of evil –

Symbols of human naivety

My own clowns are sarcastic figures of a modern European self that stands in front of a wall that he himself has built with faith and attachment and with exceptional diligence as well.

Chorus figures in a modern tragedy in which comes forth and is eloquently described a conflict between the unethical and the virtue and vice, the commercial profit and man’s right to a better life amid overexploitation and the cost of human eudemonia as well as the salvation of the planet itself.

Pleaders in a bilateral argumentation and reasoning which have come to a standstill for the time being.
