"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.
