What if we look at the story of the ancient myth in a new way, from an unexpected ironic angle?
A noble robber or a clever adventurer-Zeus, rescuing a work of art from the “dungeon” of a dusty museum – beautiful Europe. But, only in this story, the Thunderer is no longer a well-known snow-white bull, but a modern Taurus. Europe is not a frightened beauty, but a museum canvas with a geographical part of the world.
Sculptures on the theme of “the Myth of the abduction of Europa by Zeus” are the author’s game with the interpretation of the classical idea and the change of roles in the “brand” figurative plasticity.
