Prometheus

 

This statuesque of Prometheus was made out of a piece of driftwood found in a ravine, close to my home city of Patras, in Greece. It was 1984 and I had no clue at that time that one day I would devote my life, or at least a big part of it, to art. When I found the piece, what is now the head and left hand, were united in one branch. I sensed the hidden body of Prometheus in this branch as soon as I saw it. It took me from 1984 to 1996 to finally separate the head from the hand (mostly with the use of surgical blade) and give it a definite human form. The branch, then statuesque, traveled with me in 1994 from Patras to Austin, then back to Patras in 1990, then to Los Angeles in 1992. It was lost during a move from my apartment in Studio City to my house in West Los Angeles in 1996. I think I gave it to a friend for safekeeping and I never got it back. If you have any information of the whereabouts of this piece, I will greatly appreciate. You will get  a hefty reward for your help.
Sincerely,
Zafiris.
