Artist's description:

The Trojan Horse stands in a field of archetypal and mythological creatures that seem to belong more to the legends and the demi-mondes of JR Tolkien than to the ancient epic of Homer. The background at the image’s centre is lightened, so that an almost baroque illusionary space arises. Preceding any historically accurate tradition was the narrative, a poetic disclosure of past events, for which Homer is known as the first exponent. The birth of historiography is therefore the narration. Additionally, the Cosmos that the artist has applied to this image resets Homer’s Trojan Horse, to its original context of mythology, exculpated from rational classicism.
