Bronze sculpture details
For Goethe, the two-lobed leaf of the Gingko tree was a symbol of the duality of lovers. In this case, Bodirsky interprets this theme as a two-faced figure – with a female side that’s opening up and a male side that’s striving forward.
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.
