No longer man but human being.
The man at the centre
“I have placed you at the very center of the world, so that from that vantage point you may with greater ease glance round about you on all that the world contains”.
In his Oration on the Dignity of Man (De Hominis Dignitate), in 1486 Giovanni Pico della Mirandola places man, free from all ties, in the centre of creation
A new Renaissance
Hence my need to reflect on a new Renaissance.
No longer man but human being, no longer a world at the centre of the Universe, in conflict and competition with the natural environment, but humanity aware of being an important part of it.
It is humankind living in harmony with the landscape in which it lives, in a fully aware manner
Three Graces: self-awareness, knowledge, love
This idea is represented by the three Graces, who carry symbols of three values: the mirror as self-awareness, the book as knowledge and the apple as a representation of love.
Living in harmony with the landscape
The three Graces cooperate and balance one another out thanks to these three values, at a centre of a world already shaped by human beings; they are set against a field of grain that is used to make bread, yet it is also a world unconsumed, unchanged in shape. It is humankind living in harmony with the landscape in which it lives, in a fully aware manner.
Simone Bramante explains his piece of art for The New Humanity project.
