Wood sculpture from the series “Body Postures”
In which series I am looking for typical body positions during certain activity, in this case diving.
The sculpture is made from two curved, tapered, 4-sided shape cupboard legs.
In order to obtain the correct appearance of the whole, the element of great height also had to be added.
Hence the placement of the statue on the fairly high pedestal.
In addition to the literal meaning of the image, the image also has a symbolic meaning: successfully reaching the top gives wings. This is also expressed in the ladder at the base of the pedestal. The ladder is too short to reach the top. Just as there is no direct path to get to the top.
The small additions and accents help determine the final desired sculpture.
