Like the iconic sculptures in famous museums, Orpheus & Eurydice Revisited, is truly a grand statement about one of the central themes of humanity: love, self-sacrifice, and the human ability to conquer the seemingly unconquerable. The strength of Orpheus is elegantly portrayed, the drape of Eurydice’s passive body is a statement of trust, and the two combine to create a piece that defies description and analysis. Like all great figurative sculpture, this piece delivers a strong emotional message without exaggeration, without superfluous gesture or a single element that is out of harmony with the whole. It is complete. It is perfect in its restraint.
