No other story is more famous than that of Helen of Troy. Paris, son of King Priam, was promised the most beautiful woman on earth after choosing Aphrodite as the fairest between Hera, Athena and herself. Helen of Troy was the most desired and beautiful, when Paris saw her on his visit to Spartan the two had an attraction and he took Helen back to Troy. Her abduction leads to the 10 year Trojan War. Paris is ultimately killed, leaving Helen to return to Spartan. The statues space and shape convey the story of Helen being taken to Troy. The angled bodies of the Helen as she is thrusted over the side of Paris to be carried away aligned with the body of Paris as he quickly moves, knocking over one of Helens caregivers in order to escape with what has been promised to him. The dynamic shape of the figure provokes movement of all three characters in the statue. The texture of the statue details the expression of Helen's face, her hair and contorted body. The hair of Paris, the strain in his arm as well as the strain in the arms of the caregiver as she tries to stop the abduction can all be seen.
