Philadelphia sculptor Joe Mooney retells the Epic of Gilgamesh – widely known as the first recorded narrative in history – by visualizing the experiences of Gilgamesh’s companion in the story, Enkidu, at signal moments in the narrative. Mooney’s monumental steel and stainless steel sculptures capture the weight and drama of this story of the ancient Sumerian superhero Gilgamesh, who first battled, then befriended, and was ultimately transformed by the “uncivilized” and yet strangely civilizing Enkidu.
