“Mountain and altar have the same shape in common - the shape of a mound.
Correlation does not imply causality, but it will not be irrelevant that many mountains are considered sacred. More important than the act of sacralizing will be the intention that is directed towards, and placed upon, a particular topographical region.
Stripped of religiosity, an altar is a monument that crystallizes a tribute – an homage, an acknowledgment.
And if a religious altar is erected in the name of a beatified figure, a non-religious altar will be for the nameless, the organic and synthetic ones."
Text: João Mateus
