Charon’s Steel Styx Passage This sculpture, based on the Egyptians’ travel along the river Styx to the afterlife, is cleverly created with symbols of the journey and of life on earth, referenced with man-made and natural objects.
As we know from mythology because of a lifetime of transgressions when Sisyphus reached the underworld he was forced as punishment to roll a large stone up a steep hill, only to have it tumble back after reaching the top. This toil lasts all eternity and can be seen as a perfect metaphor for the creative process and life in general
Create a graphite drawing of a publicly placed sculpture that has a statement or meaning. Create at least two sketches depicting different views. These two sketches will be turned in with final project. Using the sketched images as reference, create a hand drawn, 2D rendering of a 3D sculpture idea – consider the space it will occupy. Consider the materials you would use to construct the sculpture. Why and how is the material relevant? Include reasoning in your explanation.
