Unlike my other “conversation pieces,” these two figures are roughly equal in size, weight and color. This is a conversation between adults. They are close, but not touching. Their bodies are erect and leaning slightly forward, the better to hear the other party and be sure they let the other know they are not just hearing, but listening as well. They are in a stable position, demonstrating that they are here to stay and not going anywhere in a hurry. Could we separate them, turn them around, facing them away from one another? Sure we can. But the wonderful thing about these pieces is that whichever way you turn them, they always have the possibility of coming back together.
Carved in 2009 in Alabaster.
Dimensions: 12”h X 20”w X 10”d (Both pieces together, including granite base.)
