   Sculpture Description

In the beginning, Eurynome's movement southwards caused the North wind to spring up behind her. She turned and thought this looked interesting and rubbed it between her hands. So was the serpent Ophion formed. They danced and coupled, then Eurynome became a dove and brooded their egg on the waters. From this egg all living things were born. Précis from Robert Graves Greek Myths. The work is painted in homage to black opal – a distillation of the primordial sea. It would cost five times as much if cast in metal.
