The sculpture is created from a broken 19th-century Minton Parian porcelain bust and mixed media. Theseus is part of Bouke de Vries’s series Threads of my Life, a contemporary reinterpretation of the Greek mythological story of Theseus and Ariadne, with the central theme of a ball of yarn, Ariadne’s gift to Theseus.
