THISBE - ‘Female figure in Greek mythology’

Bronze, Ruby Patina, Edition of 25

The oldest surviving version of the story of Thisbe and Pyramus is found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, published in 8 AD. The story is an older etilogical myth of forbidden love pursued through a hole in a stone wall, hence the hole in my Thisbe. It has been adapted and allude to in many forms, from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to a parody by The Beatles in 1964. I carved the original shape from Italian “Arabescato” Marble.
