This work takes as its starting point the baroque tradition of reliquary figures, the body as a "vessel". Most of the ancient carvings were hollow inside, generally for technical reasons, weight reduction,
avoiding cracks in the wood, saving material, etc. This fact made it easier to use them as reliquaries or in a more poetic way as a recipient for all kinds of messages.
Innumerable carvings from the past contain in their hollow interior messages or documents that normally their authors deposited inside them during the elaboration process.
This reality is what inspires "I hold a secret" the head as a recipient, in this case of a secret.
The anonymous character is shown as a prophet who keeps a message in his hollow interior. All the holes that lead to the interior of the head are perforated, eyes mouth, nostrils,
ears, this facilitates the entrance of light to its interior, at the same time that the half-opened mouth allows to see the document deposited by the author in the interior of the head.
A head that is the recipient of an open secret, but impossible to extract without breaking or cutting the carving.
