"Princess Des Aires" by Sylvestre Guavrit

on view at DIFC Sculpture Park
With Princess Des Aires, Sylvestre captures the impending shift towards a new era of human consciousness that is in harmony with nature. 
Through the advancements in science and philosophy, we are evolving towards a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of all life forms. This paradigm shift emphasizes mutual respect and a universal appreciation for the beauty of life, while also acknowledging the struggles and suffering that come with it.
To visually represent this concept, the sculpture embodies both strength and sweetness, symbolizing the powerful yet gentle force of this new era. He intends to use natural elements such as water, air, soil, and fire to showcase the interdependence of all living things. Each element is intertwined, flourishing and proud, providing a sensory experience that celebrates the beauty of nature.
The sculpture serves as a reminder of our responsibility to protect and cherish our planet, promoting a collective consciousness that inspires positive change towards a sustainable and harmonious future for all beings.
