Inspired by the painting “Mammon” by G. F. Watts . In 1880 he wrote, ‘Material prosperity has become our real god, but we are surprised to find that the worship of this visible deity does not make us happy.’ The original painting had the following subtitle; “Dedicated to his Worshippers” Watts apparently had plans to create a sculpture in London’s Hyde Park. He sadly never got to make this sculpture – so this digital bronze sculpture is in honour of him. Mammon is a brutish character who represents greed, and the spectre of filthy lucre. Surrounded by symbols of opulent wealth, he treads upon two crushed characters. These represent innocence and beauty – often hidden or bastardised by the drive to attain wealth. This model is also AR ready so can be easily placed into an AR scene.
