Mariluz was born at the end of the confinement, it was spring and she could finally get out.

 

This wild flower dares, through an intense orange ray, to show us a way out towards hope.

 

While its lighthouse clearly marks the way and invites you to follow it into an orange sky, its blade-shaped petals seem to give you that push towards optimism.

 

A beam of light and a ray of hope.

 

I am seduced and hypnotized by that bright blue dot that combines with its base’s soft pale blue colour.

 

It gives Mariluz authority and strengthens the dominance of her magic.

 

Its key-shaped switch recalls those toys that had to be wound up to bring them to life and softens its figure’s sharp shapes.
