The image of a snail in Sergey Falkin’s oeuvre conveys in different variations. Snails are remarkable for their spiral construction which tells us about the eternity, the movement of history in a spiral, the return on another level to what man once left.

“Mozaic” snail is not just an interesting form but also a coloristic search of how geometry works in space. The streamlined shape of the snail is created by brickwork of moss agate as if it were disassembled and reassembled like a Rubik’s Cube. The natural pattern of the stone is mixed and made the effect of fragility. That’s why she crawls so slowly.
