The Submission, 1998

carrara marble

39 x 34 x 37 cm

Humility as a state of mind, realizing one’s own imperfection. A sculpture that I never finished. The model for this sculpture was my dad, a yogi and loving person. The sculpture is based on the basic, if not the initial, yoga position – a sitting position with legs outstretched and arms slightly supported, back straight but relaxed, with exhalation the head is bent forward, it is the beginning of other exercises and the beginning of a long journey.
