Rodin's "Danaid" Bonded Marble Statue
(1885) by artist Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), Kunstmuseum Athenaeum, Helsinki
The "Danaid" sculpture showcases Rodin's aim to reproduce "the surface, soul, love, passion, life and the art of hollows and mounds," here evident in gleaming stony white flesh set against a background deliberately left in the rough. One of the preeminent European sculptors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Rodin's goal was "to render inner feelings through muscular movement." This Design Toscano museum-quality nude female sculpture is cast in bonded marble resin, virtually identical in appearance and texture to the original statue.
