“Gilgamesh” stands just outside the Mineralogical and Geological Museum`s doorway, in the courtyard between the museum and the Tozzer Library. “Gilgamesh” was dedicated at a ceremony on Sept. 13, 2012 by Cynthia Hadzi, the artist's wife. Poet David Ferry had just finished his English translation of “The Epic of Gilgamesh” in 1993 when he walked into the studio of sculptor and Harvard Professor Dimitri Hadzi. A stone sculpture there caught Ferry`s eye, and he asked Hadzi if he could use an image of it on his upcoming book cover. Hadzi said yes and went a step further, naming the abstract sculpture “Gilgamesh,” after the ancient king of Uruk, tested by the gods in a search for immortality. Cynthia Hadzi said the statue was a favorite of her husband, who died in 2006.
