His works of art are recurred in cycles, always brought to stylistic perfection, they represent an interference between realistic and metaphysical vision. On the paintings of Xantus inspired by his homeland appear the colours of spring and autumn symbolizing birth and death, resurrection and redemption, sunrise and sunset. This mythical world hides paradisiacal finesses, which have a special effect on the viewer’s spirit: becomes susceptible to the holiness and forgets the transience of life.
His set of ex libris engravings (technic: aquaforte, aquatinta) suggest confident knowledge of graphics, themes inspired by the popular mythology, represent dreams and signs of the transient time. The cycle entitled Apocalypse is an allegorical representation of the end of the world, the Redeemer appears as a protector, the characters look like being carved of stones, are dressed in white robe (symbolizing sinless spirit) and look at Redeemer with hope and desire for life.
