Bronze sculpture details
On her travels through Egypt, Maria-Luise Bodirsky studied faces and poses of the statues of ancient Egyptian culture in great detail. Years later, she created her “Freundinnen” (Friends), which are reminiscent of Egyptian block statues. However, in contrast to these, the two figures rise out of the strict cube form and enter into different dialogues depending on the position of the figurines in relation to one another.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Maria-Luise Bodirsky completed her state exams (in visual arts, German and psychology) which she did at the "college of Education" (Pädagogischen Hochschule) in Freiburg. After that Bodirsky continued her studies in painting and sculptural figures. She also attended various seminars and courses with internationally renowned artists and professors. In 1986, she founded her own ceramic studio in Oberrotweil next to Kaiserstuhl.
