The work of Kris Kuksi, a renowned artist whose work has been exhibited around the world in over a hundred shows, is epitomized in an intricate Greek god sculpture. Titled the Surrender of Helios, it is full of so much detail, that some can argue the beauty lies within the chaos of the scene depicted. It would be hard not to gaze for long periods of time at the Greek god sculpture. With every glance, it affords something new to take in.

ViceSpy.com writes that the Greek god sculpture depicts "the god of sun and his battle against worldly needs and desires while being surrounded by those very things that tempt him." This makes it as dark as it is beautiful.
