Master carvers’ mash-up

On Sept. 1, Adam Parker Smith’s “Ganymede with Jupiter’s Eagle” went on display in Ruth Wittenberg Triangle, in collaboration with The Armory Show and The Hole Gallery. The sculpture is carved from a single piece of Carrara marble and depicts a modern take on Hellenic sculptures compressed into a compact cube.

To achieve the design, Smith worked with a team of master carvers, a seven-axis reductive robot and digital research teams from several museums. The design was made into a 3D model before carving the final piece. The final result is an antic homage to Apollo of Belvedere, Bernini’s David and other historic sculptures.
