The return to classical antiquity through the restoration of the portrait in combination with its fragmentation, whether in form or through colouristic interventions, humorously illustrates the possible variations of agrippina's existence in the modern, i.e. Today's, world.

The symbols of the elements surrounding her invite the viewer to identify with a moment of personal experience of the present and the past.
