"I've lost my head over You"

Eros Bendto is one of many sculptures in City Park, St. Louis. Mo
It was done by Igot Mitoraj (done bronze in 1999 and is 89" x 146" x 114") and has the feel of an ancient relic. It was inspired by Greek mythology - the Greek God of love and desire.

Great image of a very beautiful piece of art work, I am wondering what the band that starts at the corner of the mouth and wraps around the head represents, but of course, that is what the artists wants us to do, I love it when any type of visual art asks qustions of the viewer, including photography, you d it with your images as do so many others on here, and as I hoope I do with mine. There are of course no right answers to the questions, only what the observer sees for themselves.

The bandages that wrap Ero's face suggest that the eyes and mouth have been covered indicating that desires and ideas have been imprisoned. The bandanges also symbolize two opposing views of the world - either that civilization is broken beyond repair, or that it is being held together despite destructive forces
This what was on the brochure that I had picked up - interesting. Maybe it will help
ha ha...

For Petermosull.....

Well done, Barbara. Fine details and excellent presentation. A very interesting sculpture.
