Piëta

A traditional theme for sculptures in past times when the Church or its wealthy benefactors used to commission art on a large scale. The typical triangle composition, the weeping Madonna with her dead son, we have all seen those by famous hands.

This work takes over the form, but the artist takes much liberty in the content. Inspired by his own deep wish as a man to be allowed to let down all guards, to be naked, show his all and be allowed to rest in the warm and soft presence of a lady that sees, accepts and loves him despite of all his imperfections.
