The silken, steel cones that animatedly reach for the sky resemble metal cypresses. It is well known that these trees have since antiquity connected the upper world to the world below, the underworld. The work is called Clepsydra, hourglass, and the viewer focuses on three major steel heads, cut crosswise, which intersect on vertical planes with the impressive metal cone structure. These are the heads of ancient Cypriots, for the making of which, the artist consulted the originals, kept at the Cypriot Museum. Amongst them, the most impressive woman’s head from Arsos.
