The modern interpretation of the mythical greek mythology legend ..Using scraps and found metal objects the myth came to life. THE HUS KALYDONIOS (or Calydonian Boar) was a gigantic boar sent by Artemis to ravage the countryside of Kalydon to punish King Oineus for neglecting her in the offering of the first fruits to the gods. The king summoned heroes from throughout Greece to hunt down the beast. The famed Calydonian Boar Hunt which ensued was led by the king’s own son Meleagros (Meleager) who struck the killing blow. The hero, however, awarded the skin-trophy to Atlanta as a prize for drawing the first blood. She dedicated it to Artemis, hanging it from a tree in a sacred Arkadian grove.
This piece has 5 layers of paint to prevent rust and corrosion. And detailed by hand with bronze and silver dust to highlights some parts of the sculpture. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity
