Treasure From Under the Sea

24"h x 17"W x 6"D

The inspiration for this sculpture came from the Greek myth about hydra, depicted in the famous Hellenistic sculpture known today by its marble Roman copy of Lakoon and His Sons, dated approximately 200 BC, excavated in the XVI century.
Despite the obvious struggle between three humans and a serpent, its overall composition inspired many artists and poets. Being one of them, I created an abstracted version of hydra’s movement and omitted the figures. The final sculpture continues the narrative of ancient artefacts raised to the surface of the sea reminding of bygone civilizations and as well as the plastic debris in the oceans, a mark left by our contemporaries.
