The Seven Books of Life, sculptures by Alberto Carneiro, in the gardens that surround the Municipal Library of Carrazeda de Ansiães, an emblematic place which is consistent with the intentions that lie behind its message. Engage in perfectly in the space that surrounds them, combining with the trees, the grass and the earth ... the words. It's also the life that is inscribed in the granite, which gives him immortality which itself lacks.


"These books can be read to go in Carrazeda de Ansiães, which is a place where the wisdom of the earth still lies, (and) teach us the way of art and life. Call themselves by these names. They tell these words, communicating by its forms as places of meditation and contemplation that all true art has to be. Have a high degree of simplification because the wise gesture tends to simplicity."

Bernardo Pinto de Almeida
