Curve – Ornate Architecture

I created this image from an original photograph of the Three Muses, Drama (Calliope), Comedy (Thalia) and Tragedy (Melpomene), who represent and adorn the entrance of the National Drama Theatre in Vilnius, Lithuania. Located on Gediminas Ave, the theatre is considered a landmark of Vilnius city and is one of Lithuania’s most prominent publicly funded art venues and cultural establishments. The very first theatrical performance was performed here in 1940 and was a remake of the 1901 book called The Good Hope.

As I was creating this artwork I thought about how ornate and curvaceous the architecture was, which really added to the attractiveness and presence of the theatre. Added to the front of the theatre in 1981 by sculptor Stanislovas Kuzma, it is now the theatre’s official emblem and is recognized worldwide. I have included a photo of the front the theatre as well, so you can see just how stunning this sculpture really is.
