Antinous, a Greek youth adored by Roman emperor Hadrian. Antinous was deified by the emperor after his premature death before turning twenty. His life and death remain filled with mystery, drama and passion. Just like this woven photograph. He became a symbol of male homosexuality in the Western culture with his work-ship becoming one of the most enduring and popular deified human cults in the Roman Empire.

What is a Woven Photograph?
Our Woven Photographs, Photo Wovens or Photo Weaves, as they are called, are made from two identical Giclee prints. The prints are cut in very thin strips and weaved back together adding complexity, texture, drama and relief, inviting the viewer into a memorable experience. Each piece, from cutting to weaving is completely hand made by Marcelo, following Fernando's vision. Differences in strip width, alignment and traces of my weaving touch are expected and desirable. Truly a one-of-a-kind artwork. See one in detail here.
