Black Poison

by yujtse on 9 Apr 2021 for Rookie Awards 2021

Referencing from the description from Virgil of Laocoon's death in the Aeneid, "atroque veneno", loosely translates from Latin to black poison. The blood of Laocoon, mixed with the venom of the snakes is said to have spattered from the body of Laocoon as he faced an agonizing death.

Laocoön and His Sons,

An ancient sculpture, excavated in 1506, often reffered to as "the prototypical icon of human agony" in Western Art.

In Aeneid, Virgil describes Laocoön's death:

Ille simul manibus tendit divellere nodos

perfusus sanie vittas atroque veneno,

clamores simul horrendos ad sidera tollit:

qualis mugitus, fugit cum saucius aram

taurus et incertam excussit cervice securim

Black Poison is a project that I worked on by myself, rendered with Redshift.
