Judith and Holofernes by Kordianl Judith and Holofernes by Kordianl
I made this sculpture ​​for the exhibition "Pop The Bag" organized by the Printemps in Louvre.
Inspired by theme of Judith beheading Holofernes classic but forgotten archetypeI tried to update this, referring to the modern mythology of popculture and the world of comics.
Sculpture is 3 meters height, made in cooperation with van den blocke studio.

I saw this on Nerd Approved. This is about one of the most awesome sculptures I have ever seen. Big Catwoman/Selina Kyle fan so this really has made my day.

An amazing work: it's a dream.
Aesthetically stunning, devastating in a sensitive way.

I would say "Congrats" , but I would not be up to par :

I prostrate at your feet, Maestro! :D (Big Grin)

Artemisia Gentileschi is my fav when it comes to the paintings; she's just so passionate and determined.

On another note, this is wonderful! I love how organic the clothing looks. :heart:

i think it looks like batman's head is checking her butt out.
i would of turned it to the other side(as the back has less volume) or to a 45 degrees angle/
overall i think it's an awesome statue although i didn't understand why the pedestal is shaped like that, i think you could of added the full legs or design the bottom more than a blank square with circles on top.

overall, amazing job, it's great that the space is this large, it needs attention!

Are you saying that the Batman is somehow Holofernes? Kind of a stretch there isn't it? Considering that you know... He's the good guy.

Oh I GET IT! You're memorializing greed, larceny and murder...

"The Selfish near-do-well –On-again off-again love interest of the Batman, sneaks about Gotham having somehow, miraculously, decapitated him and is now sinking into the shadows?"

Perhaps if you had chosen as your subject... Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor? Or Darkseid... Yes Darkseid makes a Great Holofernes.

Not so sure that a guy who rescues children from burning buildings and catches serial killers is your guy there buddy.

Great craftsmanship though. Congrats on the DD.

I do like that she's being displayed in what looks like a posh department store. That is totally Cat Woman.

Or it could be a statement on how in this current culture---society rewards or glorifies greed, larceny, and murder... in contrast to the 'classic' virtues that used to be espoused by society (the art is indicating society's pitfalls rather than society using art as mere propaganda).

I don't know if that's what the artist intended at all... but just another possible interpretation. :)

It is damn good to know that artists who are truly gifted and talented continue to astonish. Especially on this cesspool of a site known as home to every pathetic weeabu who ever lived. Damn nice to see something that binds the basic culture of today with the elaborateness of yesteryear.

I agree with Xen, I probaly wouldn't use a mean of words but he makes the point and the point the same, is it good that this person got a DD? Heck yes, but that dosent mean you have the right to put everyone else down and make an achivment like what Kord has gotten just that much harder to reach. You may think what you wish but do not think that it is okay to do somthing like this. You have probaly destroyed someone's self confidence with that comment Panzer, and that is just as good as cyberbulling. I know I sound like I am overreacting but please do not do this again. >:( And whoever reads this comment, think what you wish of me but I have two main things to say... 1: If you congradulate somone please realize how others may react to it, and 2: I dont care what people say, you are you and that deserves to shine. I am not a very good artist myself, heck I am not even a very good family member, brother, or worker. But I still try and somtimes if I am lucky I get great responses. And I know all of you deserve that to. P.S. Kordianl, if you see this comment I must oppoligze for this very long comment. I know it took me forever to get to the point. Sorry. Wonderful work by the way... I truly love it...
