Edition of 500 copies.

Signed with a finger mark on the slipcase (see photo).

AMA LUR is the closing chapter of Galerna, an investigation project that Jon Cazenave embarked on 8 years ago. In the course of these years, the artist has compiled a visual repertoire of the Basque people's idiosyncrasy and aesthetics, in an attempt to unravel his homeland's political intricacy from an anthropological perspective.

Harking back to the Late Stone Age, Cazenave focuses his inquiry on the symbolic and ritualistic world of cave paintings on both sides of the Pyrenean watershed, reinterpreting the traces left behind by the human beings who inhabited that environment.

AMA LUR thus challenges the notion of the border and reveals a territory loaded with history and magic. Delving into the Earth's deepest recesses, Cazenave connects us with a universe that appeals to humankind's ancestral spirit and to our balance with nature, a belief system that still guides us to this day.
