About the Work

I've always admired the Roman Pantheon, with its mother of all domes, as one of the greatest feats of architectural engineering ever. Its simple grandeur is astonishing and makes it a great work of art. The 19th founders of the Italian monarchy are buried here - not very important maybe as they were only around for seventy years or so while their host has been around rather longer. Yet they, like Raphael, also in the Pantheon, are part of its story. In this slice of history, an elderly monarchist changes the flowers at the tomb of a king less familiar to most than the Roman Emperor Hadrian, founder of the Pantheon two thousand years ago.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
