Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
"This artwork is a performative piece whose concept is an analogy to the origin of life and its environmental awareness. Therefore, there was at the origin of the piece, a concern for the materials that make the concept come about, glycerine and honey, one that has the components, such as oxygen, hydrogen that make us live, and the other a consequence of bees, neither without them we could survive. So, I created a performative piece, which consists of using these soap, until there's nothing left for our own benefit, exactly the same as we are doing with the planet."
