Bronze sculpture details
The name of the goddess of love and beauty means “born of foam”, for in Greek mythology, she rose out of the water. The blue patina on Bodirsky’s Aphrodite points this out, whether she finds her place in a garden pond or on solid ground.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Maria-Luise Bodirsky completed her state exams (in visual arts, German and psychology) which she did at the "college of Education" (Pädagogischen Hochschule) in Freiburg. After that Bodirsky continued her studies in painting and sculptural figures. She also attended various seminars and courses with internationally renowned artists and professors. In 1986, she founded her own ceramic studio in Oberrotweil next to Kaiserstuhl.
