Unicorn: “[…] the ideal of extreme purity and spiritual innocence”.

An artistic journey of paintings of animals (real and imaginary) and of various objects symbolizing man’s superstitious beliefs.
The technique used is called “tempera dissolved in the egg white”, a technique which is no longer in use but which the  Altamura artist decided to retake to further highlight the typical light effects of the latter.
The captions for each painting accompany the visitor in this artistic journey to better understand the symbolic message that  every image, either of animal or object, is meant to represent as a good or bad omen.
