Fontana di Caronte

I tried to capture the moment right before Eurydice falls back into the depths of the underworld, after Orpheus breaks his pact with Hades and looks back to check on her while they were sailing back to life with Charon, the ferryman. ( Check greek mythology of Charon and Orpheus ).
This was probably the longest personal project I have ever had.
Had an amazing conversation with this sculpture since early this year and let it evolve with no rush.
I started with a simple idea of a pose and with the input of some life experiences it took different shapes until the final result.
The biggest influence here would be a trip to Italy and Greece. Seeing the amazing art in those places made me feel so humble and inspired…
