Greek Sculpture and Hummingbirds

 

I had been cutting out newspaper articles about an exhibition of Rodin’s Sculpture and the influence of Greek Sculpture on his work. At some point from a pile of images on my desk a cut out hummingbird lay close to a picture of a Greek Sculpture. I was taken with the beauty of this pairing. Conversations followed during the making of the book including one about the attempt to weigh the weight of the human soul. This is detailed further in the book.
