Asclepios – The Sculpture
2019 - 2021

“A sculpture freely inspired by Michelangelo's Moses sculpture in Rome. Moses being a leading personification of hope in Jewish, Christian and Islamic history. I added an elaborate Renaissance or Baroque kind of column with a large snake coiling around it. As in the ASCLEPIOS paintings, the snake is actually a friendly Asian dragon and as such no possible threat but rather a metaphor for continuous change. Asclepios is a sculptural equivalent to the paintings and a metaphor for hope and health across Eastern and Western cultures and religions.”
