ISdN - Zeus 2 by laether-mad ISdN - Zeus 2 by laether-mad
I Sovrani del Nulla - The Lords of Nothing


Dei, Eroi, Santi. Erano i signori del mondo, salvatori dell'umanitÓ, patroni e custodi, esempi di virt¨. Ma ora gli uomini li hanno dimenticati, hanno abbandonato i propri miti, spento le sacre aureole, relegato il divino ai margini di una societÓ pragmatica e materialista prossima al deperimento.
L'umanitÓ ha rinunciato all'eternitÓ in favore di una labile contingenza.


Gods, Heroes, Saints. They used to be the Lords of the world, mankind's Saviors, patrons and guardians, pure examples of virtue. But now people have forgotten them, they've left myths behind, put off sacred halos, and relegated the numinous at the edge of a pragmatic and materialistic society on the way of perishment.
Humanity gave up eternity in favor of fleeting contingency
(Thanks Laura for the translation)


Model: Stefano
Location: Ravenna (Italy)
Character: Zeus is the "Father of Gods and men", according to Hesiod's Theogony, who ruled the Olympians of Mount Olympus as a father ruled the family; he was the god of sky and thunder in Greek mythology. Zeus is frequently depicted by Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.
