Melting sculpture that symbolizes time’s importance

Art and sculpture have always found out ways to glorify the natural world by depicting its implications on human life. At the Venice Art Biennale some time ago, Urs Fischer exhibited a dramatic installation that was made of wax, and melted throughout the day.

It was a recreation of the renowned 16th century sculpture by Giambolognanamed The Rape of the Sabine Women. Surprisingly, a bizarre addition to the classical masterpiece was a modern man, also made of wax, clad in everyday clothes and looking at the sculpture. The melting of the entire thing went on to show that time erases all entities. via Urs Fischer’s website | via mymodernmet
