His entire adult life Karl has been interested in spirituality, religion and mythology, which he studied intensely, including its use of symbolism and allegories. This reflects in much of his work. Those classical themes range from Greek and Roman, to Catholic and Pagan. Of course, there are also more general classical themes. But all of them have that typical ‘Karl Hammer signature’ of symbolism in them, sometimes openly and sometimes only clear to the initiated.
