CARTAPESTA IN PROGRESS: Hermaphroditus

12 May

Right now finishing the “inside skin” of male and female sections of sculpture.
In the myth 15-year old Hermaphroditus undressed and entered an empty pool. A Nymph, Salmacis, sprang out from behind a tree and jumped into the pool. She wrapped herself around the boy, forcibly kissing him and touching his breast. While he struggled, she called out to the gods that they should never part. Her wish was granted, and their bodies blended into one form, “a creature of both sexes.”
