Contrary to the everlasting marble, alabaster is a passing thing. Hesitantly passing, though, between the vegetal germination and the prompt visible fascination. The transparent roc, by diluting itself in light, appears to induce semi-transcendence.
Even opaque, mat and blurred, the alabaster unveils an inside, much like some defenceless organisms do. It is as if the stone lost its defences, depetrifying itself. The surface – its last defence – becomes translucent membrane.
