Trojan War. Achille’s Fight with Hector. I Part



2020, 19,5 x 29, 5 cm, bronze, incrustation, author's technique./// The bronze triptych is inspired by Homer's ancient Greek heroic epiad "Iliad", created in the 8th - 7th centurieS B.C. The moulding depicts part of the mythological Trojan War between the Greeks and the Trojans, which took place around the 12th century B.C. and lasted 50 years. The reasons for the outbreak of the Trojan War are not mentioned in the epos and the events are described along with the thoughts of the characters. One of the main themes of the epos is the anger and revenge of the hero Achilles. Each part of the triptych includes a number of events that are not chronologically related to each other, similar to medieval art. The sculpture represents the mythological genre of fine art. The molding is created in a complex author's technique - in the beginning, a shape is made in which bronze is casted. The character faces and other elements are then formed using an inlay method with colored papers. This is followed by varnishing of the tab and painting in the. The bronze tab is designed in the typical style of the artist Roberts Diners. It combines the archaic worldview and the traditional medieval painting, which is masterfully and subtly created by the artist Lilija Dinere. ///I part. Achilles Fight with Hector The battle between Achilles and Hector begins as Hector, the son of King Priam of Troy, kills Patroclus, Achilles' best friend. The conflict began as Agamemnon, the one who started the Troy war, abducted Chryseis, the daughter of Troy’s priest Chryses. Agamemnon does not want to return Chryseis to Troy, therefore plague is sent to the Achaeans, and Achilles has to make sure that Chryseis is returned to Chryses. As revenge, Agamemnon takes Achille’s prisoner Briseis from him. Due to that, Achilles refrains from any further battles with Troy to deprive Achaeans of the chance of defeating Troy. To provoke Achille's anger, Hector kills soldier Patroclus, Achilles' best friend. The molding depicts the moment when Achilles kills Hector near the Trojan fortress in a duel. There is confidence in Achilles' movements. Hector is depicted at the time of his death, losing his sword from his arms and falling. Hector's body is decorated with a wound painted bright red. In the story of “Iliad”, Gods engage in the storyline, discussing what is going on and giving advice to the heroes. At the top of the molding, there is a face of the Greek mythological god of War - Ares, looking at the duel in outrage. God's eyes are highlighted, symbolizing outrage and anger.
