The golden pebbles- Part 1
The sculpture is an representation of the heavy bag found by the fisherman. Albert got inspired by the story wrote in "The path of tears" by Jorgen Bucay.
Full story of the abstract:
“A fisherman used to go down every night on the beach to throw his nets. This night, while getting in the water, he collided his foot on something very hard in the shallows. He noticed it was really heavy, like stones, wrapped in a bag. He got angry and muttered: "Who is the stupid one who throws such things on the beach?". He immediately reprimanded: "On my own beach". It's a bargain! Maybe that's why, when he came out of the sea, he stumbled again on the bag that was then on the beach. He took out his pocketknife and opened the bag. There were a lot of stones, big like oranges, heavy and rounded. The fisherman still thought "But who is this idiot who wraps stones and throws them into the beach?”. He instinctively took one, weighted it in his hand and threw it forcefully into the sea. A few seconds later, he heard the sound of the stone sinking deeply. He threw stones, one by one, until the sunrise.” - Jorge Bucay, 2006
