The Greek Caryatids, who embody youth's grace, pure beauty and calm power, inspired me this tribute to the Woman, a series of six portraits where apparent weakness and contained strength, lightness and depth oppose and complete each other. Melodic in essence, Cariatides is structured in circles, in which the 3rd and the 4th parts are the expressive nucleus of the whole composition.
