Detailed description

Mermaid bowl (wall), bronze

Usually, the mermaid enchants the pond in which she lives; this one is her own home and is both a mermaid and a water bowl. Her wide-stretched arms elegantly merge into the bowl's rim, which stands on the floor but can also be mounted on a wall.

Edition in bronze, cast using the Lost-Wax-Process, chiselled and patinated by hand. Limited edition of 199 copies, numbered and signed. Size 18 x 34 x 26 cm (h/w/d). Weight approx. 9.2 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.
