“Eros” is sculpted from one solid piece of red elm. It is firmly mounted to a steel two-part base, which allows for rotation of the sculpture. There exists a vertically plum centerline to the sculpture which is seen from opposing sides. The pinnacle of “eros” maintains its center as it is rotated. A three-inch diameter steel base is fastened firmly into the wood and is inset precisely into the larger base. “eros” can be lifted from its larger base and proven its unique balancing characteristic upon the three-inch base.
The title suggests its harmonious interlocking embrace of two separate figures, combining together to become one. Its organic movements and sweeping curves return our attention to the nature it was inspired from.
