    About this Artwork

    Hagesandros, Polydoros, and Athenodoros. Before I outline the argument that Lessing puts forward in his essay Laokoon, let me call to memory the antique marble group depicting Laocoon and his two sons caught in the coils of two serpents, one of the great works of Greek plastic art. The group was known to posterity through written testimony long before it had been viewed by the first eyewitnesses of modern times. The Roman historian Pliny (Pliny the Elder) had written in his Historia naturalis:”The Laocoon. Is a work to be preferred to all that the arts in painting and sculpture have produced. Out of one block of stone, the consummate artists, Hagesandros, Polydoros, and Athenodoros of Rhodes made, after careful planning, Laocoon, his sons, and the snakes marvellously entwined about them.” The statue of Laocoön and His Sons, also called the Laocoön Group, has been one of the most famous ancient sculptures ever since it was excavated in Rome in 1506 and placed on public display in the Vatican, where it remains. It is very likely the same statue as that praised in the highest terms by the main Roman writer on art, Pliny the Elder. The figures are near life-size and the group is a little over 2 m (6 ft 7 in) in height, showing the Trojan priest Laocoön and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus being attacked by sea serpents. The first part of the digital series "PRESTIDIGITATION" consists of 12 topics: 1.SHADOW FROM FAUN'S HAND 2.FROM PONTE VECCHIO 3.MOSAIC RHYTHM OF ROMAN BATHS 4.BEACH COCKTAIL 5.MEMENTO MORI CHERUB OF THE ETERNAL CITY 6.THE RECLINING BUDDHA 7.BAIYOKE SKY AND WORLD TRADE CENTER 8.LAOCOON 9.THE KEY OF ETERNAL LIFE 10.FRESHNESS DIABLO 11.RED, WHITE, BLUE, WHITE, RED 12.SEA FOOD.
