All art arises from nature as do humans. I love this piece and its placement in the garden. The texture of the sculpture and the garden are so alike. Kudos to whomever placed the sculpture in this spot.
What are the emotions of the figure? Is it elation, satisfaction, a sense of oneness? A sense of oneness with both the beauty and brutality of life? As there is no light without darkness there is no beauty with ugliness. There is no good without bad. In the garden of good and evil the artist arises to share a vision, to share what is seen, what is felt. The artist is the eyes of the world.
