This is my personal vision of the Tree of Life as the centuries have left as a frame for the projection of subjective contents. At first there is the dream, harmonies and colors, happiness in promise of accomplishments, of meetings. Perfect agreement in the acceptance of differences and the hope of continuity. In the center, the representation of the weight and the complexity of our civilization. Infinity, referring to the meeting of opposites with the sun and the moon. The multiplicity of existences and the uniqueness of a painful fate, of an essential gravity in the birth of feelings and understanding of others. Burden of existence being origin of Creation and quest of Divine and seeking of an impossible agreement between Civilization and Nature. On the frame, evocation of six Sefirot, belonging, on the left side, to the ‘feminine principle’ (passivity, discipline), with Mercury, Mars and Saturn, and, on the right side, to the ‘male principle’ (action, compassion), with Venus, Jupiter and Zodiac Signs. Above, the central panel represents the Fate and the Chance; on the right, the Snail, hermaphrodite symbol, the impossible union and eternal continuity; on the left, ‘Ouroboros’, snake or dragon biting its tail, engendering itself, representing rebirth, the perpetual new beginning, drawing link between Life and Death.
