Contexto

A Triangle that a monk of the eighteenth century draws from the pagan Thuringian pine tree forests and sacralizes it to the Holy Trinity. A Triangle that becomes a clause, within a Christmas canon. A form that in December is common and commonly recognized, as a Christmas tree. An icon in the hypermodern times, a sign that recalls the paganism, the consumerism and the hyper-consumerism.

A Triangle that a monk sought to sacralize, and which today is desacralized in the decorations that in December transform our cities into a plastic dream of which we are witnesses.
