The Wisdom of the Earth

 

Brancusi - The Wisdom of the EarthThe wisdom of the Earth reflects the philosophy of Brancusi who was his roots in a wisdom prior to christianity.
The sculture represents a woman that is very focused on herself, her face emanating a mistery that transforms
her into a universal portrait. The attitude of the statue emanates a sense of attachment towards earth. In a way very similar to the Thinker of Hamangia.

The work was exposed for the first time in 1910 in Bucharest and roused a lot of questions, but ultimately it was accepted.
