The greatest battle,
waged between pulses
Deadens the spirit,
numbs the man inside
A small vein of life,
pushes through the cracks
Among calloused stones,
this green sliver breathes

    • The sculpture is part of a series that depicts various heroes and stories of Greek mythology. That’s probably why it’s a little disturbing! I decided to interpret from a more abstract point of view in conjunction with background (which is also a work of sculpture!). 🙂
