Bronze sculpture details
The family tree of David – of the King of Israel – is also (as Jesus Christ is the son of David, and as such he enters into Jerusalem celebrated as the Messiah) the motif of the rooting of the Transcendental God in the creation of the universe. We read how this effect comes to fruition in the “Book of Ruth”. The Holy Scripture has handed this story of love down to us. The motif of the square plaque is the primordial mother of the House of David – “Ruth” in the archway of the garden at the root of David’s family tree (Ernst Fuchs).
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Prof. Ernst Fuchs
Ernst Fuchs, who died in November 2015, always wanted to be a universal artist – and he consistently realised this desire throughout his life.
