This adaptation of the Greek tragedy is set in modern times. Originally produced in Nazi-occupied France, Antigone’s tragedy is not based on her inability to change her fate, rather it is founded on her futile struggle against the all-powerful state. To convey the tragic ending, I used the the type of the play's title to simulate a noose, with a stylized human face formed around the "eye" of the letter "O". If you look closely you can see a texture of a crown in the red face.
