The Piss - Sculpture by @cerny.david in #prague where two men (I presumed were politicians) are pissing on the Czech Republic. I wonder if Indians would EVER be okay if an artist portrayed the map of India in this way? Though pissing on the roads of the country is pretty much the norm 🤔
I finally finished this little fella, a crystal parasaurolophus and he's already in the shop, yay! It has a tiny crystal in the back of its head but a crystal cluster on its back, too. At first I wasn't quite sure how he's going to turn out but I must say that I'm really happy with it! It's so much fun to work with such a fresh color palette. And now comes the important bit! I really like having proper shop updates but at the moment I feel so clustered with work, it is easier to just list what I have right away. Anyhow, I will make a post about the items I list so I recommend using post notifications if you're looking to snag something. 😊💚
Carved in stone and still covered in toolmarks,The Cathedral is a combination of two right hands, belonging to two different figures. It was entitled The Ark of the Covenant, before being named The Cathedral, very probably after the publication of Rodin’s Les Cathédrales de France, in 1914. Parallels may be drawn between the mysterious inner space that seems to emanate from the composition and Gothic architecture. Emptiness was a factor that Rodin used to allow for, and, as Rilke pointed out, “the role of air had always been extremely important” for him (Rilke, 1928).
Very similar to The Secret, this work belongs to the series carved in marble, most frequently after 1900, such as The Hand of God , The Hand of the Devil, Hands of Lovers and Hand from the Tomb. But, more broadly, it emphasizes Rodin’s fondness and passion for these hands, which he isolated, like the fragments in his collection of Antiques, in order to give them a more finished and autonomous form.
