Metamorphose 1.980,00 €


Bronze sculpture details

In classical mythology, metamorphosis is generally the transformation of a human figure into an animal, a tree, a stone – no species remains constant, it says in Ovid. Bodirsky’s Metamorphose (Metamorphosis) shows the simultaneity of old and new, of dead and alive, of outer and inner. The process of shedding a skin and opening up is painful, yet also releasing; it challenges you to let go of the old and open up to the new.

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