This Burning Man Sculpture By Alexander Milov Makes You Think
The Burning Man festival in Nevada is full of wonderful art, including amazing sculptures on a massive scale. At the 2015 festival, one sculpture that was a favorite among the thousands of people there was the one you see below, by Ukrainian Alexander Milov. The sculpture called “Love” features two wire frame adult figures, sitting with their backs to one another, while two child figures inside the adults simultaneously reach out to one another.
You can take from it what you will, but the artist said of his work, on the festival website “It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark, the children start to shine. The shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.” Beautiful!
