Francisco Antonio Cano | Horizontes, 1913


"Horizons" is considered Cano's masterpiece.
"Horizons" epitomizes the idealized migrant family.
It portrays a young, fair-skinned colono family - consisting of a husband, wife, and child - sitting on a bluff, surrounded by mountains.
The three members of the family are likened to the Holy family, with the woman dressed in blue and white like the Virgin Mary, with a baby on her lap.

The human body rather than a being erotic or leakage eager libido, is itself, by its immediate essence, a dreamer, a creator and it is through the body, of that battered body, which has become a being communicating with dreams, ambitions, doubts and loneliness, that man has imagined and amazes us every day.

Gabriel García Márquez ~ La marionetta | La lettera di Addio dello scrittore

Se per un istante Dio dimenticasse che sono una marionetta di stoffa e mi regalasse un poco di vita, probabilmente non direi tutto quello che penso, pero in definitiva penserei tutto quello che dico.

Darei valore alle cose, non per quello che valgono, ma per quello che significano.

Dormirei poco, sognerei di più, capisco che per ogni minuto che chiudiamo gli occhi, perdiamo sessanta secondi di luce.

Andrei avanti quando gli altri si fermano, mi sveglierei quando gli altri dormono.

Ascolterei quando gli altri parlano, e come

gusterei un buon gelato al cioccolato!
