“MONADI” Edi Sanna

The Medical Grass, Alfalfa (Medicago Orbicularis), that is represented in this work, is the grass eaten from the cows to the pasture and that planted from the peasants after the collection of the wheat in order to enrich the land with nitrogen. This is native in the Mediterranean and in the Middle East and joins from milleniums these places, under the sign of the nature; I have found this plant in mine travels in Turkey, Greece, Syria, Croatia, Spain and Italy.

His fruit is much little one, measure a single centimeter of diameter; thus  it is so much difficult to see it, and he is camouflaged in the meadow, assuming the same color to the seasons changing.
The form of this fruit has fascinated to me since is the three-dimensional rappresentation of the spiral; while in geometry, the spiral does not have a solid one that develop he.
In mine deepen study of the form of this fruit (that I have called spiraledro) I have observed it, designed, modeled in various materials, discovering the less visible face: between the two spirals face of this solid, there is a thirth face that evidence some parallels lines. Observing them rifl we can see that his chiaroscuro is a lot clean; the contrast between the light and the shadow, is very defined from an invisibile line that is the limit of his; like it is very defined the limit between Life and Dead.
This limit is a place in which the light and the shadow is approached and they are met. It is the place in which the exchange of acquaintance between the two opposite elements happens. The differences in the comparison are moderated and the temperanza allows perpetrating the life, as it happens in nature. In this place light and shadow they are contrasted. Here they speak about Amor-T-e (Love and Died), T like cross like suffering.                         
In the form of this fruit the spiral, the symbol of the life, is born from a point centers them, it is evolven and it continued from the other side till the point from which it is born, where seems that it dies, but from this point it recommences its way, that describe a form like 8, that is thus a continuous cycle.
I have intentional to represent the Monads Theory of Goffried Willielm Leibniz (mathematical philosopher of  the ‘700) with the fruit of medical grass, because the form of the fruit of Medicago Orbicularis, spiraledro, teaches on the mystery of the life.
G. W. Leibniz was theorizing that all the universe and his created, are composed from basilar elements one equal ones between,  that are constituted from a infinitesimal part of universal knowledge. And he is in that they differ between they: every element contains a different part of this. Thus all the monads entirety compose the Great Monad, the Universal Knowledge in other words God.
