This statue i saw during my San Francisco trip, in some small art gallery near Pier39.
Somehow this statue had an interesting effect on me. Very rarely i meet pieces of art that touch my soul. For example, Da Vinci “Mona Lisa” was a complete disappointment to me… i guess i would have to agree, that the point of art is to “comfort disturbed and to disturb the comfortable…”
The emotions in this statue are incredible. Yes, many visual art forms with families, couples and babies are “cute”, but they never really touched my heart, they all were missing something for me, and i never considered them “cute”, but this particular statue somehow is different to me, it feels different…
This particular art piece, radiates pure and unconditional love in my opinion. And not because there is mother and a baby, but the way a male figure barely touches the female, at the same time having the look in his face that any woman wants to be looked like at, pure love.
We all, looking for one thing in life, love.
But not just anyone can allow love in…
“If we listen to our intellect,
we’d never have a love affair.
We’d never have friendship.
We’d never go into business,
because we’d be too cynical.
Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got
to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down”
