The emotion of art
I know it isn't Art Friday yet but I want to share with you these 2 sculptures that say so much with no words. These two of art works stir emotion - that is their purpose. Each piece has been created to remind us of something important. Each piece carries a strong message that the sculptor wants to share with us through this visual form. I have to say the second piece is the one I find the most disturbing and every I look at it I feel so sad.
There are many sculptures in memory of the millions of Jewish who died during the Holocaust, but this is one I find so moving. Shoe Sculpture - These metal sculpture can be found on the Pest side of the Danube and is a memorial to all the Jews who were shot by the Nazi's and left to fall into the river. The monument contains of 60 pairs of iron shoes, forming a row of about 40 metres. Personally I find this one more upsetting than the one above, there is something very disturbing and tragic that really moves me.
