In a greek myth Sisyphus tries to cheat death and gets punished to roll a rock to the top of hill. That meant that he would have to keep rolling the rock up since it will continue to roll back down for an eternity. This clay sculpture tries to embody humanity, which goes always through the same circle. It progresses and then it starts doing steps back instead of forward. But every time it falls we built it back up, just like one can make something new out of the collapsed pieces of clay. The rain could be symbolizing time and how important is water for life.
