The Two Horns of The Dreamer
Bronze, stainless steel
Edition of 8
30 x 30 x 30 cm
The two overlapped and juxtaposed faces represent the state of being immersed in dreams. The dreamer closes her eyes, and the dreamy clouds suspends on her forehead like a gorgeous double horn. A balanced yet dynamic composition was created through the pointing cone, like a compass. The portraits are made of bronze. The double horns that represent the dreams are made of stainless steel, highlighting its lightness like floating clouds.
