Game Over by Kordian Lewandowski
Polish sculptor Kordian Lewandowski reinterprets the classic Pietà - a topic in Christian art based around the Lamentation from the Passion of Christ - using polystyrene and 8-bit mythology.
I’m going to try to avoid over-thinking the way in which the Princess Peach/Mario and Virgin Mary/Jesus relationships can be thought to parallel each other.
Fun Fact: Perhaps the most famous example of this form, the Pietà by Michelangelo located in St. Peter’s Basilica was the only sculpture the artist ever signed.
You can see more of Kordian’s work at his website, including his 3D model of Rocksteady. =)
