Sculpture description:
This life-size sculpture of a man struggling to leave his stone chrysalis is carved in Greek marble. Please see Artist comments.
Artist's comments:
I carved this sculpture from a 2,500kg block of Kavala marble during the summer of 2014 at the Greek Marble Initiative symposium in Thessaloniki, Greece. The sculpture is about the struggle men go through to first realize and then act on their true nature and become self-actualized. This is no easy feat and many prefer to avoid the challenge, to compromise and live a mediocre life. And the struggle can go on for a long time, sometimes a life-time. In this piece I tried to capture the intensity of this passage at a moment when he`s giving it all he has but it`s not clear if he will succeed. The central idea is his determination to change.
