Detailed description

Sculpture "Siren", bronze

Passionately, Nikolay Anev interprets the motifs of classical Greek-Thracian mythology. This sculpture depicts Siren, which was already described in Homer's Odyssey. No man could resist the enchanted song of these beings - half-human, half-bird - who lived on a rocky island. Whoever heard them had to follow them and smashed his ship on the sharp rocks. Odysseus had all of his sailors plug their ears with beeswax and tie him to the mast to escape the seduction. Only the Thracian Orpheus was able to escape the Sirens' seduction by his own willpower.

Exclusively at ars mundi: "Siren" sculpture in fine bronze, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process. Patinated by hand, polished and mounted on a diabase pedestal. Limited edition of 199 copies, numbered and signed. Height incl. pedestal 54 cm.
