Sisyphus Umbilicus, Sculpture by Matt Toole

450.00

Sisyphus Umbilicus is comprised of a live oak burl from the low country of Savannah, GA, combined with a stone from Loch Ness, Scotland and connected by a copper cord.  The small sculpture is a play on the Greek mythology of Sisyphus.

Sisyphus, in Greek mythology, is the cunning king of Corinth who was punished in Hades by having repeatedly to roll a huge stone up a hill only to have it roll down again as soon as he had brought it to the summit.

Most objects in these sculptures are actual objects found in the Low Country of Savannah, GA. They are parts of a larger environmental collective that people have been drawn to for millennia. Organisms that grow and thrive in Savannah, as well as objects from the industrial components of our city, are represented in these works of art.
