"Mrs N's Palace"

I have shown you a photograph of this sculpture before, only I showed you the whole thing.  It is a "room" with four outside walls and four inside walls, and the complexity of it is nothing short of astounding.  It is a work by the sculptor Louise Nevelson, and it took her thirteen years to complete.  It is assembled from found objects.  It is impressive when you see the whole "room" but I was taken by all the small details of just this one exterior wall.  I cannot begin to explain why I am so moved by this, but the detail and variety of shapes is just mind boggling.  And this is just one wall!  If you want to see my first post, with a wider view, and a view of the inside, please go go:  Mrs N's Palace.
