Bronze sculpture details
Tree trunks that form a passage and a ladder, and a person on the search for knowledge, with his ambivalent need for flight from the harsh truth or for spiritual flights of fancy. This configuration of symbols bears within itself a central impetus: the call to rethink the relationship between man and nature, in order to recognise its elementary significance for personhood. For, without a natural relationship between environment and one’s own self, the person relinquishes actual life.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
