XU ZHEN® applies appropriation and recreation on the renowned marble statue of Laocoön and His Sons. The heads of its characters are magnified to generate an eccentric and jocular effect. Pliny, a Roman author, attributes the work to three Greek sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus. The statue depicts Laocoön, a Trojan priest, and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus trapped to death by serpents.
