Romulus and Remus – Only available as part of a set by Diane Victor

Romulus and Remus is part of a suite of ten etchings titled Birth of a Nation. The imagery is ambivalent in that it adapts classical mythology to a South African context of visuality, this case the suckling wolf of traditional mythology is replaced by a hyena. The negative areas behind the figures and the hyena were given a grey tone by introducing a slightly etched rosin aquatint.
