Until 1958, Dimitri Hadzi’s sculptures were inspired by Greek and Italian classical art, often depicting mythical creatures such as centaurs and lapiths. Elmo V marked a new phase in Hadzi’s career in which abstract forms evoked historical moments rather than classical myths. Elmo V, or Helmet V when translated into English, resembles a bronze military headpiece protecting and shielding three legs at the bottom of the piece to create a tension between stability and instability.
