Beautiful wood work sculptures of children that tell a million tales by Italian artist Gehard Demetz.
The inspiration behind the art, translated from the artists words:
They were children of 6-7 years of age.. Rudolf Steiner says that until an age of 6-7 years, that children can feel/hear in their unconscious the experiences of their ancestors. I have always been fascinated by this sort of thing, especially when thinking of my own childhood. The children in my sculptures realize this gift knowing that, when they become adults, they lose the ability to contact this unconscious, but to gain the advantages of being an adult. Children live with faults that are not threatening to their other sculptures and with under their sole control transform into/become adults (sculpture- “I want to be Flexible”). Hilter and Mao are a group of sculptures where I tried to see if the children, frail shouldered and weak in the legs, were to be future dictators, thinking that something was wrong in their growth/birth.
