The River

By Steve Yeates | 4 comments 4 comments


This sculpture is inspired from the text of Dante's Inferno. In the Inferno he mentions the river of souls traveling to hell.

The body of The River is a papier mache form covered with the countries with terrible human rights. The red silk represents the people that pass through and their blood!

The sculpture is approx 75cm wide and 3 meters high

Fantastic. Are you planning on expressing other strong emotions through your mediums too?
