"The relationship between light and Genesis should be of particular consequence to us, the Romanians. Why is that? The Romanian word 'Lume' {World} explains the process of Genesis. In the philosophy of our old way of speaking, 'Lume' {World} is what came out of or through the Genesis. This World comes to be what it is precisely because it is lit up. The mystical and symbilical complexity of this word urges us to look for other 'etymological kinship' in the depths of our language. Thus: according to the same 'complicity', our language sees in the main function of the Mind, which is wisdom, not so much the innovative thinking that contrives, but that essential function belonging to it, which assists our fulfilment through Remembering. Before anything else 'The Mind remembers the answer would be primordial, revealed Truths. Oravitzan's luminous wisdom draws its sap from the revival of these primordial truths. As it appears in Oravitzan's painting, the Cross is not merely the main symbol of our Christian religion, but it opens towards all the other great religions, being the main symbol of the material world, each of its arms symbolising a cardinal point. Two symbols are uppermost in Oravitzan's painting, the Cross and the Centre. The Cross appears as a symbol of the visible world that awaits ascension to Heaven through the sacrificial act. The Centre, because the world exists around us like a miraculous sphere with the centre all over. This Centre of God ultimately, alive and almighty presence in everything, that surrounds us and everything that we are. Oravitzan's preoccupation with the Centre is not of a geometric and spatial order but of a structural and spiritual one." {Paul Barba-Megra}. This book has 241 pages and is profusely illustrated with 150 full-color illustrations of Oravitzan's works, with captions written in ENGLISH, FRENCH, and ROMANIAN. At the beginning of the book there asr two essays, one written by Paul Barba-Negra and the other by Marcel Tolcea, written in ENGLISH, FRENCH, and ROMANIAN.
