From the research on the Jupiter column, a series of small god statues came into being. As in LUIZADO, archaeological findings – such as helmets, armour, busts and columns – are a direct source of inspiration. The observer recognises some elements, but will discover new shapes as well. RACHT looks like a guard, or a disciple of a divinity who is safeguarding an unknown sanctuary. This sculpture is at the same time frightening and fascinating. One can wonder if this guard hides the realm beyond the tangible from the viewer or if he rather opens the gates to this unknown territory. Moreover, RACHT tells about the construction of the past which is interpreted differently during each historic period.
