Portrait of the grandson of the artist Francesco Zanzottera in a theatrical clothing. He is portrayed detached from reality, in a pure world in a sort of garden of Eden summarized in the figure of the tree on the left. The central figure indicates with the left hand the number three, a magic number for the Cabala, but also indicating the trinity, the triune and unique, the transitory nature of things. The number three also recurs in other works as a sign that introduces the catharsis of the soul, the highest moment of human existence that rises towards the divine from which it originates. The same theme of Eden leads the observer towards a perfect world without a shadow of sin, a place where the normality of man becomes law beyond the daily necessities, where the struggle for survival is not yet taken as a paradigm. of daily living.
