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..

I was born in Cyprus and I have studied Architecture, graduating in 1995 with a thesis entitled "Myth-historical topography", a land-art project, being my first step towards a new descipline the one of Art. After working for three years in an office producing mainly stage-design projects, I was awarded with the scholarship in sculpture from the National Institute of Scholarships of Greece and continued my studies in sculpture in K.I.A.D in Canterbury, England. I received a Master's degree in Fine Art in 2000 and since then I 've been working as a sculptor. My work is dealing with matters of form and space, which means that incudes Installations, Land art projects, Design of monuments and Drawing as a tool of understanding reality, expressing emotions and ideas as well as a preliminary stage for sculpture projects I am also concerned on the human figure and how it is placed in space. My work has a morfology that reflects my relation with the history of art from the ancient to the contemporary.
