Artwork title : Fragment

The fragment of the Socrates statue represents his existence. Represented by his mouth, bearing all relation to oratory and also to the organ by which he drank his own death.

Also in the background, we have a clear division, to symbolize the passage of time and the division created in philosophy between the pre-Socratics and post-Socratic philosophers.

Despite not having left anything written, his influence is strog, represented by the fragments below of main statue.
