Magdalena Abakanowicz
1985 - bronze

For her first work in bronze, the artist chose a field enclosed by a barbed wire fence just outside the confines of the Romantic garden.

However, when one walks around the figures and views them from the inside, one realizes that each figure has been modeled uniquely from the others.
