“Potente di fuoco“, in english : “The power of fire”
Noting his son’s sincere and persevering passion for the invention of new animal species, Leonardo / Ericailcane’s father had the brilliant idea of sending him a selection of his childhood drawings.
A rediscovery to which Ericailcane wished to pay homage some twenty years later by reinterpreting her own drawings with her adult eye and her artist’s hand. It is this series of mirror-drawings that will be to be discovered in the magnificent attic of the Musée du Temps.

Like a Jean de la Fontaine muralist, the Italian artist creates animals with human postures, illustrating social facts or local problems with a touch of satyric humor. His imaginary world, at a time poetic and terrifying, offers several levels of reading, whether in his delicate engravings and drawings or in his sculptures and vast murals.
