Irony – Sculpture by Addé 2019
A nymph, and one of the Driades, was known for her wittiness and acerbic sense of repartee.
Her sarcastic humour was much feared as she would devastate any spirit in a few sentences.
Therefore, her victims were said to have been left flat, « ironed » so much, most of them could not surmount the pain and would hang themselves discreetly in a wardrobe.
In ancient Greece, old people would behave with pretension and arrogance, and it was said that the wrinkled should be corrected and thus, deserved to meet Irony.
The wrinkled needed ironing.
A sculpture of a never heard of character deserves Mythology.
