An edition of 24 cast resin sculptures.
Over the course of a hundred thousand years, humans slowly moved from our home in Africa across the continents of the world, carrying with them languages, stories and their long lost philosophies about the meaning of existence. Some of those stories were about mythic heroes, some were about Gods, supernatural beings with the power to help or harm in unfathomable ways. Pan, Loki, Anasi, and Awanyu all have their counterparts.
Across cultures and oceans some of these stories persist, despite many thousands of years of separation, despite thousands of miles and thousands of retelling by thousands of generations. So much space and time and yet the universal stories persist of the great flood, Cinderella, Serpents and Saviours, Gods with horns and wings, magical tools and powerful personalities. These stories and religions are as immortal as the beings they describe. And yes, humans are still shaped by these immortals, each generation with each retelling. Our Gods are our stories and we carry them wherever we go.
