Sculpture "The God Doctor Asklepios (Aesculapius)"

People came to him for healing when no other human healing art could help: in the ancient times the temple of the god-doctor Asclepius in Epidaurus as a place of pilgrimage. The huge gods' statues in the temple, prepared by Pausanias, were lost in the whirl of times. What is left, are the small statues like these, which received the tribute of the healed people. The sculptural model shows Asclepius in the typical presentation with his stick, wound with a viper, as a dominant, posture, shaped by the will.

Polymeric ars mundi sculptural model, cast by hand. Height 60 cm.
