Bronze sculpture details
Wheel gymnastics was developed in Germany in the 1920s; today this sport is practiced across the globe and world championships are even held every two years. Neuwirth shows a gymnast in her wheel, whereby he has perfectly depicted the momentum of the rolling gym wheel.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
After completing a "stone sculptor apprenticeship with a master's degree" (Steinbildhauerlehre mit Meistergrad) and gaining several years of experience in the parental stone mason firm, Hans Neuwirth studied operation at the "advanced technical college" (Fachhochschule) for design in Schwäbisch Gmünd, under the tutelage of Fritz Nuss from 1966 to 1973.
