Cherub 2.660,00 €


Bronze sculpture details

In the biblical tradition, cherubim are angelic beings who, as a mixture of human and animal, possess great powers and also function as guardian spirits. Bodirsky’s Cherub appears to be a different sort of composite creature, combining human and tree, and thus perhaps not protecting God the creator so much as the creation itself, which is given to us as nature and a place to live.

Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
