Jiménez Deredia finds in the forgotten indigenous substrate of the Costa Rican cultural identity a symbol that shows him the meaning of Being: the stone spheres sculpted by the ancient Boruca people. This cultural heritage marks his sculptural work, and the sphericity becomes the icon of his thoughts.

The sphere that Heritage holds with its hands is a symbol of continuity between deep history and modernity.
