This solo is constructed with linear architectural joints, levels of movement that slide one into the other, dynamic complexities that articulate imagination spaces in continuous disappearance, supported by air, volatile structures that do not generate weight.

Mandala immediately dusted. Peak that probably is the Methedras.

[Methedras (the last peak), the mountain that is mentioned in The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. At page. 531 Merry, in a dialogue with Pippin, thinks to see its summit]
