This work of art is conceived as part of a space that has already been configured, and is highly architectural.

The relationship of the sculpture by Cristina Iglesias with the space in which it is developed is one of the main elements in her work, together with the poetry of her materials. This piece combines the illuminated appearance of its alabaster vaults with the spatial element, which has taken on a form of its own. Verticality, play of light and internalisation submerge the onlooker into a realm of the spirit, like a sacred forest or Gothic temple. However, the element that makes this piece a sculpture and not a building is its dialogue with the surrounding space: a real and limited space.
