What is remarkable about this piece is its simplicity, its absence of detail. It is pure earth, sky, and moon, expressed in a simple metallic-toned palette. Piazzoni considered the land a manifestation of divinity. The natural world offered meditation. When asked by an interviewer, And what is your religion? Piazzoni hesitated, then replied, I think it is California.
