Jumping until I drop around the Fountain of Life was my first effortful physical activity after a complex surgical procedure and then recuperation. I quote a scene from the Pasolini film in which Ninetto Davoli, jumping around, naively asks his father in the film, Toto: “E Papa, perché beati, beati?”
In my case the quote from the Pasolini film is both an expression of creative joy and a contrast to the sculpture of Meštrović.
