The seed is, as botanical science says, the component inside a fruit that holds the embryo that can turn into a new plant. This sculpture uses that concept, picturing the woman as the bearer of a new life. She is the seed and origin, root and tree. At the same time, it alludes to the biblical concept of the first woman: a beautiful story about the transmission of life, polluted by the concept of sin. This is why she looks at the apple as a symbol, and tries to run from it, posing outwards, trying to flee from that negative legacy that still glistens and weights too much.
