Thrashus Skate Sculpture By Rom Av Jc 1

As Pythagoras said, “The whole air is full of souls, and these souls are called demons and heroes. It is in fact a representation of a demon, or daemon, in Latin that we find on this amphora in the form of a krater. For the researchers, identifying which demon this one referred to was a difficult task, but they finally found that it was Thrashus, the demon of skateboarding. Illustrated with a skateboard wheel between his teeth, the writings tell us that he was the one who pushed the gladiaskers to go down big downhills, launch themselves on huge sets of steps or drop roofs of buildings as big as the Parthenon.

It was made by the artist Rom av.JC and is now visible until June 26 at the Gallery Wawi at the exhibition “Mystic Syncretism”. The work is available on the gallery’s online shop.
