Detailed description

Garden sculpture "Aphrodite small", bronze

The name of the goddess of love and beauty translates as "the foam-born", for, in Greek mythology, she emerges from the water. The blue patina on Bodirsky's Aphrodite refers to this, regardless of whether she finds her place in the garden pond or on solid ground.

Edition in bronze, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process, chiselled and patinated by hand. Limited edition of 99 copies, numbered and signed. Size 32 x 20 x 25 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 6.2 kg.

About Maria-Luise Bodirsky

Born in 1952, sculptor and ceramist

It is the basic elements of earth, water, fire and air that the sculptor and ceramist Maria-Luise Bodirsky, born in 1952, combines in her sculptures and the working process. Clay is her elementary artistic means when capturing, tracing and depicting the inner and outer conditions of her figures.

Bodirsky draws inspiration for her archaic-looking figures from the early history of mankind such as Egyptian high culture, Greek mythology and the Old Testament, or from modern literature for example of Pablo Neruda.
