Antonio Amezcua Hervás: Poder Supremo, 2005 (Supreme Power)
Iron, 200 x 300 x 50 cm
Poder Supremo (Supreme Power) stands today in the park of the academy and is sculpture no. 2 on the sculpture trail Cerda & Celtoi.
The 200 x 300 cm large iron sculpture traces the silhouette of a centaur sculpture (fantastic creature: horse's body with a human face), which was found on a bronze flagon in the grave of the Celtic princess of Reinheim (Saarland). Poder Supremo is placed so that the morning sun falls through it. In addition to the Cerda & Celtoi project, Hervás Amezcua connects the exhibition "In the Mirror of the Princess" with the Saarland with Celtic motifs, also based on the princess' grave, which he conceived and also showed at the Europäische Akademie Otzenhausen in 2003.
Antonio Hervás Amezcua (*1951 in Jaén, Spain) represented Spain in this project in 2005. He has lived in Gava (Barcelona) since 1966, is a multidisciplinary artist and masters a wide range of genres and techniques: painting, engraving, sculpture, mural painting and goldsmithing. He is currently a professor at the Facultad de Bellas Artes Sant Jordi de Barcelona, specialising in drawing. For a long time he has also lived and researched in Iceland and the USA.
