Hydra - The Invincible. Veronika Dietrich Be-Acht-Ung Veronika Dietrich - Kunst Mit Herz & Seele
As a massive threat and greedy of all snakes, it appears in Greek mythology.
If you hit her head off, then two new ones grow up at this point.

It is by no means just an extinct myth; But on the contrary:
Omnipresent, we fight with Hydras of all kinds, be it in the form of terrorist groups, unscrupulous rulers, exploitative industries in the poorest countries of our earth or in the near range; just think about the development in the car industry, the electricity companies with theirs Nuclear power plants, to the tax office or to real estate moguls.

Hydra, the many-headed snake-like invincible monster from Greek mythology.
The'Hydra'can also be seen as a parable, for situations in which any attempt at containment or oppression will only lead to an escalation.
Does the Hydra therefore stand for what one can only'hold'by leaving it untouched?

The sculpture is illuminated.
Materials used: driftwood, aluminum, steel, glass, light.
