Hope vs Death - front view

Hope vs. Death, Maquette for Bronze Sculpture
48 x 68 x 41 centimetres (19 x 27 x 16 inches) Not including the Base


Inspired in the Death and Temperance figures from the Marseilles Tarot, this sculpture , meant to be life size, represents the struggle to keep hope in times of war. The surroundings of the two main figures are made of human parts, and it is immaterial whether they belong to Germans, Britons or Frenchmen. Body parts and different uniforms are mixed up in the chaos of Death. The only living human being is holding onto the foot of the angel, whereas all others are dead and in contact with the skeletal figure. Despite being in a higher position, Hope occupies the left side of the scene, representing the mind and ideas. Hope is after all a state of mind, whereas Death is a reality, her feet well stablish on Earth, as those of the humans.
