Very Beautiful and so perfect at this time, Thank You In 1965, I saw this at the world’s fair in NYC. I was 10. As the walkway took us past this sculpture (close enough to touch), it appeared out of the dark illuminated by spotlights. It sucked the breath out of me. The glow from the inside of the marble is indescribable. His sculptures have to be seen in person as the quality of marble is almost alive. Thank You Lori for this exquiste moment of enlightment and perfection. liquid marble poured over a living frame! You couldn’t have chosen a better image. Happy Easter! I saw this sculpture in Rome in 1992. I stood there crying, it is incredibly beautiful. It’s as if she draws you in to her sorrow. Thanks for posting it! Comments are closed.
