big apple artist Jason Hackenwerth, recognized for his natural and biological varieties constituted of latex balloons, simply unveiled his newest work on the Edinburgh world Science pageant within the Grand Gallery of the national Museum of Scotland. Titled Pisces the sculpture is the artist’s interpretation of the legend of Aphrodite and Eros: in Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and her son, Eros, escaped the fearsome monster Typhon via reworking into a tightly woven spiral of two fish, a figure which later turned into a constellation known as Pisces. The spiraling kind is constituted of 10,000 balloons which took three team of workers members virtually six days to blow up, after which Hackenwerth and his assistant Leah Blair wove in moderation into this three dimensional structure. Pisces might be up thru April 14th, 2013 and you will find far more of it on Flickr.
