Thalia ja Pegasos / Thalia and Pegasos

Eläintarhantie 5, Kallio • Helsinki • Artist Kari Juva
Published 1970 • © The artist

In `Thalia and Pegasos', placed in front of the City Theatre, Kari Juva's (1939-2014) skill in uniting mass and the lightness of movement into a seamless one is in good evidence. Pegasos, the inspirer of poetry, carries Thalia, the muse of comedy, on its back, carrying the viewer away in a wild gallop.

The work was erected in 1970 and it is cast in bronze. The work belongs to the collections of the Helsinki Art Museum.
