“Strange fruit”

24 x 24 x 64 cm
Maquette for bronze casting.

When I was living in Copenhagen I often visited the Glyptotek Museum. This is where I came across one of the most terrific sculptures the city has to offer, “Spartacus”, by French artist Louis-Ernest Barrias. I fell in love with this piece, not only due to its beautiful craftsmanship of white marble but mostly because of the dramatic scene it depicts. This sculpture is my version of that story.
