Project Description

FOUR LOVES, BRONZE

I was inspired to make this sculpture while reading C.S.Lewis’ Four Loves. I decided to present the loves as the foundation stones on top of which the weight of the world should be supported. The first stone represents Faith/Affection Love (AGAPE) which I have made out of polished bronze so as to look pure.

The second stone represents Passion/Love (EROS) which I have represented as a red (passion) stone strong but yet fragile on its own. The third is Friendship (PHILIA) I have made this in polished stainless steel, because you are reflected in your friends.

And finally the fourth represents Family love (STORGE) and I have made this one out of wood, a warm material, because it’s live, organic and it grows. On top of these stones you build your world, which is a complex puzzle that has to be assembled. And finally, when you assemble this all, you build your relationship and if you then manage to keep it in a perfect balance

you achieve the ultimate goal of having a long lasting relationship which is magical and more precious than gold.

Material: Bronze, tile wood, stainless steel, red travertine and corten steel.
