Sculpture Saturday #34

Last week’s sculpture #33 was of Picasso, while this one is from the Picasso Museum in Antibes whose terrace is home to a permanent collection of remarkable sculptures by Germaine Richier, Joan Miró, Bernard Pagès, Anne and Patrick Poirier.

This one, Jupiter and Enceladus (1983), is by Anne and Patrick Poirier who devoted several works to the theme of Jupiter and the giants. In mythology Jupiter fought the giant Enceladus whom he destroyed. You see the arrow that killed the giant as well as scree of ruined temple, and fragments of the giant’s head.

This challenge is kindly hosted by Susan Kelly over at No Fixed Plans.

  1. Lovely Sheree…I can admire almost all of the works of those artists (sculptures as well) except for Miró, whose works I cannot tolerate. He might have been a charming gentleman, but his “art” is pure and complete rubbish (to me, naturally), and I think it is famous only because of his family connections and money and the fact that he created his own foundation here in Spain…
