This comes from a series of variations of the theme. They derive solely from the artist's imagination, not established iconography. From as far back as the Sibyls, Cambiaso has taken certain themes as an opportunity to express his virtuosity. At this last stage, with the cubic module reasserted and any material appeal suppressed, the virtuosity turned to invention alone, like a Jesuit's meditations on the life of Christ.
