Undoubtedly, the man in this piece crated a sculpture of a woman in search of salvation through love, but when she comes to life, the last vestiges of peace are taken from him. Man and woman, humankind and nature and the sense of irrationality drifting between the two. The chilly air is pregnant with loneliness and a profound sense of sadness.
