The Slave

Graphite on Paper

This is a drawing of the sculpture "The Slave" by Stephan Sinding, 1913. You can find the sculpture at the Glypoteket in Copenhagen.

The slave has an expression of defiance and fight against his position in life and his oppressors. He is strong, made strong by the physical work he has to do as a slave, and he is oppressed by forces stronger than him. But, we realize that he has a chance at getting his freedom, and with his attitude he is free even though he is physically tied.

The drawing is an original, one of a kind, drawn with led pencil on an A4 page (21 x 30 cm). It ships unframed as shown in the photo.
