Astyanax (king of the city)


It is an allegory for the son of Hector Astyanax who is about to be killed when Troy is conqured by the achaeans.The golden thread on his head is a sign of his imperial heritage and the texture of the sculpture transmits the tragic fate of the child.
The sculpture belongs to an installation with a title “the farewell” with two more figures. Hector and Andromachi which compose a theatrical synthesis representing the farewell of a woman and a child to the warrior before the final fight. On the side of the sculpture the observer may see a wooden structure symbolizing the archetype of an “oikos”(house). The sculpture is made of plaster and burlab on a metal armature..
