Sphynx
Sphynx is the guardian of the north east gates of Arminopola, the last passage that leads to the desertic lands of Icambra; It is said that this creature is not made by Olympians, Actually some  Oracles sing about some Wolf-Bird shaped gods from foreign lands who gave Olympians this beast to ensure the division of this two continents. Little is known about this guardian, but something is certain he is quite a colossal monster and sings beautifully a melancholic dark melody that enchant any living creature on earth.

troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In origin, troll may have been a negative synonym for a jötunn (plural jötnar), a being in Norse mythology. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings.


  • Lou Lou Pan
     
    Lou Lou Pan was one of the first underworld creatures, he was an energetic and loony monster, he used to play with the fairies, his brothers, with demons and spirits; he was not aware of the daily personal dramas tragedies and gods troubles.. so  he used to be in trouble all the time, misunderstood, loved but hated by times and he was always in the middle of wars, troubles and fights, making the underworld mad.
    One day Athena went down to the creature realm and faced Lou Lou…
    Athena spoke to Lou Lou and told him, he should remain silent and behave as the demigod he was, she would not spare another misbehavior.

     Lou responded ” The day I remain silent and calm would be the day of my dead, I want to live freely and have an adventurous life; I would prefer to die and became a stone, rather than pretend to be something clearly I’m not, I’m so sorry I’m not like the other ones or that  I’m not useful for the Olympus deeds. but I exist and I decide”
     
    Athena full of rage decapitate Lou Lou’s head, and instantly his face turn to stone.
    Thunders and Lighting’s disrupt the underworld and the realm turned darker.
    Pan’s Realm was not the same after his dead, the Underworld turn silent and since then, no joy or trouble returned to this forsaken dimension.

The Underworld of the Faun

Since I have use of reason,

I have lived in another world, always fantasizing about being elsewhere with other life forms, imagined alternate realities, with owl attentive eyes, searching “unique” things and weird living things . 

As a child, I had a strong predilection for knowing the Nordic and Greek mythology, the epic wars; A fascination for bestiaries, the world of Tolkien, Celtic Tales, the Grimm’s, Hans Christian Andersen etc.

As I began this collection, I had no specified intension of the model, never had a preconception or what would be the sculpture final form; According to the projections, the slits of eyes, the amount of mud on the table and informal aspects, with lots of imagination, I gave form and identity to the sculpture.

The result of this process led me, to see a factor in the semantics of my productions; which were creatures, monsters and characters, similar to those mythology beasts from  my childhood tales.

So I decided to continue shaping the identity of creation by giving a narrative or to assign an existing mythology singularity.

The Underworld of the Faun, is the collection of sculptures made in 2012 - 2013, in a dark and chaotic period in my life where literally the works are the reflection of my subconscious, pretty chaotic full of demons but always with a touch of mischief and humor; which is an important part of  what I am.

Welcome to the underworld of my unconscious, where there will be beasts, demons and the occasional fairy; a forgotten world for those who are in spite of its nature in peace and harmony in the shadows of the world….
