Bronze

Eurydice III is a part of a long sculptural tradition of taking elements and placing them in different contexts to create entirely new meanings, and evoking entirely different emotions. Rodin brought this method of seeing “anew” into the modern era. The female figure of Eurydice III, is taken the narrative context of Orpheus and Eurydice, and now exists as an exemplar of female beauty.
