The Enemy of Laoccon No.2 by hasaqui yamanobe
Acrylic on WoodPanel
33 × 23.5inch
The priest Laocoon who appears in Greek mythology is strangled by the sea snake.
My worlk’s theme is “the enemy” of Laocoon. The stature of “Laocoon group”and Lessing’s work “Laokoon” are great achievement in art history and those have a very big influence.
But no one think about who killed laocoon.
So I want to thinking/drawing about it as an aesthetics thinking.
