Two Divine Bodies In One
Digital Art - Digital
A cold March night in 1960, Federico Fellini films the famous scene of “La Dolce Vita” at the Fontana Di Trevi. The northern 'goddess' Anita Ekberg, half naked inside the fountain, raises her right arm, playing with the water while the maestro's camera records some of the most legendary frames in the history of movies.
It was not an easy decision to transfer the Nike of Samothrace in this picture – despite my enthusiasm conceiving the initial idea and realizing how good the two bodies adapt to one another.
Nike is considered a unique symbol of beauty, exactly as it is, with no arms and no head! On the other hand, Anita doesn't need any wings in order to become more divine than the great italian director managed to show. Nevertheless, I decided to realize the initial idea aiming once again at proving the consistency of the ancient Greek ideals (not only in aesthetics) in various modern artistic themes and philosophical positions. At the same time, my aim should be considered a tribute so much to the unknown sculptor of Nike as to Federico Fellini and Anita Ekberg.
