Description

Statue of a walking man - with a hole in his chest - holding a suitcase. "The figure is scanning the horizon, in a daring position, as if pretending to jump over the sea, with a suitcase in hand, and many more suitcases in a series as a chain behind him; these suitcases behind him surely mean the memories, the sadnesses, the nostalgia, the girlfriend, the mother, the sisters, the family.... that are left behind by an emigrant who takes a new life, who jumps over the infinite sea, in search of a new life in strange and distant lands."
