Bronze sculpture details

In Plato’s Symposium, the comic playwright Aristophanes explains love as follows: once people were creatures with two heads and four limbs. They angered the gods, however, and Zeus punished them by chopping them in two. Since then, each person has been looking for the complement that matches them. Bodirsky interprets the “round people” as two human figures standing upright who only form a whole when joined together. Inside of them, however, protected and secure, is the deeper meaning of their fellowship: the child.

Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
