Detailed description

Sculpture "Lady Justice", bonded bronze version

The sculptor Peter Hohberger became known for his expressive depictions of the human body, preferably borrowing his subjects from mythology. The fine abstraction, sensitivity and classical and realistic modelling skills give Hohberger's objects special expressiveness.

For his Lady of Justice, the artist wanted to avoid the Baroque pose where sword and scales are presented in an almost dancelike manner. Instead, Hohberger took inspiration from the depiction of the Virgin of Mercy with her outspread cloak, which appeared in Italy as early as the late 13th century. The cloak offers protection to those seeking refuge. Law, justice and jurisdiction protect society - a cloak that promises security to those seeking justice.

ars mundi Exclusive Edition in a limited edition of 298 copies, divided into two editions. Size 41 x 35 x 11 cm (h/w/d). Edition in polymer-bonded bronze. Limited edition of 199 copies, numbered and signed. Hand bronzed, patinated and polished.

About Peter Hohberger

Born in 1939, former actor, now sculptor and painter

The sculptor Peter Hohberger, born in Silesia on 12 November 1939, was already involved in drawing and modelling as a child. After a successful career as an actor, he has devoted himself to painting and the fine arts for many years. He sees himself quite consciously as a sculptor in the classical sense.

His basic aesthetic understanding is influenced by nature. The beauty of the human body is what fascinates him and which he translates into his nudes and portrait busts unaffected by modernisms. His role models are the masters of ancient Greece, Auguste Rodin and above all Arno Breker, who instructed him personally. He has learned from all of them, and not only in the accuracy with which he knows how to depict the beauty of the female body.

Hohberger says: "Art that enriches life and makes people happy outlasts any kind of so-called zeitgeist".
