In ‘Prilep Nymph’, Domanović adapted one of the sculptures from Bogdan Bogdanovic’s ‘Partisan Necropolis’ monument, built in 1961 in Prilep, Macedonia - a group of deformed classical columns interpreted as a ancient fertility goddesses with two-faces, evoking the Greek God Janus. Historically women on funerary monuments had magical properties, because everything was governed by natural cycles. This female monument, built to the original scale, is said to evoke continuity.
