            ‘St. Anthony Seduced by The Infinite’ is a piece part of my ongoing series focused on a personal and contemporary take on classical art themes, made for RE/UR Reperti Urbani, an urban art project in Pesaro, Italy.

The figure is here tempted by the promise of eternal life, represented by a reverse pig’s skull (the hog is in fact one of the saint’s classical symbols often depicted close to his figure).

On bottom right the latin words Ad æternum (forever).
