The Greek and Latin kingdom of the dead, Hades, was inhabited by the shadows of the dead, by bloodless duplicates of what once were beings in full force. The shadow is an image, a representation of the object that casts a shadow, but it is an incomplete representation of it, a silhouette in which only the outline is represented. In this period where Covid has very often forced us to be isolated, our shadows are more similar to the shadows of Hades, they have no root, that is, they do not have the subject that determines them. In this print, 3m by 2m, I have represented this idea. Print 3mx2m.
