You - always thinking
ahead – stole, with a
glow on your face,
the fire from the gods,
for culture’s cause.

Everything has its price,
Hephaistos chained you
at a rock, and an eagle
picked your liver daily,
until Herakles finally
set you free.

You warned your foolish
brother Epimetheus,
against the temptation
of any divine gift, but he
- incorrigible afterthought -
still married Pandora,
the first woman, with her
pernicious jar.

Marco Pastori avatar
Marco Pastori This is a very unusual and unique work. Its colours and the expression and look of the eyes are so particular.
But the connotation that mostly impressed me is the shape of the face…it reminds me the shape of Africa….is it fortuitous and it's only my impression or there is something else?

Jos Letschert Mehmet and Thierry, thanks for the appreciation of my Titan, indeed!
3 April 2017 at 05:17pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Marco, thanks a lot for your very secure observation. To be honest, there is not a special or specific connotation with the shape of the face. The shape is the result of aesthetically deliberations and coincidence. I mention or explain my way of working often as 'management of coincidence'. I try to influence coincidence, as far as possible. Nevertheless, your intriguing observation is very interesting and it could have been a conscious image element.

Jos Letschert Michael and Marcel, thanks a lot for your feedback. I do appreciate your judgment very much!

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Katon, thank you very much for your feedback. I am very pleased about it. Yes, the dualism trickers and intrigues me very much: the imagination of age-old stories, values and concepts at one hand, and the translation into modern forms of art at the other hand. Thank you for observing and mention it!
3 April 2017 at 05:26pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Edna and František, I am very pleased about your feedback. Thanks for the observations. Yes Edna, the emotion is very special in these really iconic cultural heritage of Greece mythology. That is why I mostly try to use two different kinds of expression: poems and portraits. They should influence each other.
