The awarded work "Antígona", by the sculptor Gustavo Rodríguez, is reproduced accompanied by a brief reflection of the artist, which allows to delve into the creative act. Just as in Greek mythology Antigone invents herself in her gesture of burial of the brother, this work of Rodríguez also results in an original assembly of scattered pieces. In the tragedy it is the bodies scattered on the battlefield that must recover the dignity denied by Creon. In art, it is the sharp look and intuition of the sculptor that performs this essential symbolic operation. An original meeting point between literature, mythology and the visual arts, including the finding of the photograph of the work, whose shadow projects the sculpture, extending it to the whole humanity.
