Great Art: My Favorite Sculpture

© Lee Sandstead, used by permission

This has to be my favorite sculpture. Even in a photograph, I cannot look at it for long without being moved to tears. The woman reaches up for love. She touches him tenderly, bare of soul. He lifts her head to his lips, and they unite in a circle beneath his hopeful gaze. An exalted human experience, love and passion triumphant!

Thank you again, Mr. Sandstead, for bringing great art to our attention. If anyone out there enjoys this photo, I suggest you visit Mr. Sandstead's website, Monument Light, where you can buy prints and replicas like this one, or just enjoy the fact that such great works of art exist.
