‘Heavy like a Boulder’ is the 3rd illustration of the series ‘The Inner Metamorphosis. A Journey through Loneliness’. This is a series of 9 artworks inspired by the artist’s experience that represents a journey of deep reflection and personal growth through loneliness. The metamorphosis of the butterfly has been used as a metaphor to narrate the lonely experiences of the artist.

Every illustration of the series corresponds to a sentence of a poem created by Ilaria. (In bold the sentence related to ‘Heavy like a Boulder’)


‘A big city, a lot of people, but I am lonely

A long list of contacts but no real connections

I am lonely, weighed down by a rock

The fear grips me and all around is just dark 

The exhausting battle has started

Only a hug can beat the loneliness

Now I can see myself reborn in the mirror 

I can fly freely together with others.

The metamorphosis has been accomplished.’
