To be or not to be

We consider the human being at the moment he is born, when the nourishing cord is cut. However, one in four pregnancies will not give birth to a living being. The empty settings are like traces of what has been, of what could have been, of what will not be or no longer be. The fragility of wax recalls the fleetingness of existence, silver the persistence of memory.
