Sisyphus

14 x 14 X 8 Inches

Sisyphus

Gods sentenced Sisyphus to lift up a huge stone on the top of the mountain, from where this boulder would inevitably roll down.
Greeks had a reason to believe that there is no punishment worse than useless and hopeless labor.
Albert Camus, in his famous essay interprets the myth of Sisyphus as the logic of absurdity for the millions of working people.
Artist makes his poetic interpretation of Sisyphus at work. It can be called poetic - at least as remarkable Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky described the task:" Shine always; shine everywhere, that's the motto of me and the Sun! "
Black figure beetle working every day rolling the Sun to the top - to " shine everywhere " - is optimistic interpretation of the well-known myth.
The ascending and descending of the glowing ball resembles the cyclic movement of the celestial bodies on the sky: the cyclical movement of the sun and disappearance of the moon below the Earth surface.
