Justified & Ancient: Within & Without - the full story

This was an amazing project to be a part of. I am very honored to be one of the 16 artists chosen to create a piece of work based on an antiquity from 5000 years ago. I submitted a concept based on the 4-headed god Janus. After researching, I learned that Janus is the god of transitions: doorways, beginnings and endings, war and peace, sunrise and sunset.  Janus can see outward in all directions but is blind to internal vision. 

My goal with this piece was to illustrate how our search for self (the LIGHT) can sometimes be a hard path to push through, but the rewards are worth it. The video above shows the work in process and the final piece. I also go into a little bit more depth about the elements of this sculpture. Enjoy!
