A friend sent me this image recently.
The sculpture was built for the Burning Man festival in 2015 by Ukrainian artist Alexander Milov.
The sculpture, entitled “Love,” was meant as an expression of our inner and outer selves. Particularly how our adult bodies can overshadow our inner children.
However the dilemma it captures strikes a different chord in me during these current (pandemic) times and seems prescient in a way the artist couldn’t have foreseen.
I wonder how many of us are feeling — or have felt, or will feel — the distinctive brand of isolation captured here?
