SUCHAB, 2012
30 x 22 x 16 cm
11.8 x 8.7 x 6.3 inches


From the research on the Jupiter column, a series of small god statues came into being. As in LUIZADO, archaeological findings – such as helmets, armour, busts and columns – are a direct source of inspiration. The observer recognises some elements but will discover new shapes as well. SUCHAB looks like a guard, or a disciple of a divinity who is safeguarding an unknown sanctuary. This sculpture is at the same time frightening and fascinating. One can wonder if this guard hides the realm beyond the tangible from the viewer or if he rather opens the gates to this unknown territory. Moreover, SUCHAB tells about the construction of the past. Each historic period, interprets the past differently.
