 gilgamesh by arifcekderi  gilgamesh by arifcekderi
2 mm black sheet iron,just metal.... humered sheet iron
and than, more black colour was fired with wasted oil
2.70 cm with its plinth,and 80x 90 cm....it is a little bit weighty,i think 60kg because i used material more than 50 kg ......
2006

it is my final project in the shcoll
Gilgamish.....
İ choosed this semi historical,mythologic man because of Gilgamish is a middle eastern value of the world,also his story is a frist written epic in the world ,archaeologists said.....Gilgamesh's story has a frist Noah Flood narration before other monoteist relgions holy books.İ think many people know that epic,but İ just impresed his humanitarian search and mutiny...İ love mythology.
İn my sculpture,İ choosed his semi god,invincible wariors situation,when he wanted rebel to gods...And ancient trace with modern material...yes
........
thanks for photos to

Wow, this is simply awesome!!! Although it is about an ancient figure, there is a 'modern' feel to it... The posture is very awe-inspiring, reminiscent of the power of a God-King... Well done!

geç cevap için üzgünüm,valla predator'a ilk benzeten sen değilsin,birazcık fazla ayrıntıya girmemden kaynaklanıyor sanırım,2-3 kişi üzerindeki mezopotamya etkisini farketti.Az kişinin vermek istediğim şeyi farketmesi her zaman kötü birşey olmasada bazı şeyleri biraz daha farklı yollardan vermem gerekiyor sanırım,teşekkürler.

oo thanks....hımmm.. İ had graduated from Anatolian University, Fine Arts Faculty in Türkiye,but my scholl... they dont teach you making sculpture like this,they can just give you aparats and give you knowledge about how can we use these.They dont shape your way....Actualy,before İ started to making sculpture,first İ search details of my subject,if there is a something which i can reflect to my material,İ just repeat it,İ dont change anything...my teachers study more abstract than me,nevertheless they didnt want to cross my work.this is my way...And...Gılgamesh was my final project,it was finished about one month,day and nigth,it had to be finished at time

The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of my favorite epics! I was surprised to find any work that wasn't related to that insipid anime, "Gilgamesh".

Great job!
