Sculpture Passione man and woman by Fons van Dommelen
£41.65 inc. tax

£41.65 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.

This colourful sculpture of an intertwined couple is a typical symbol for a loving relationship. Both are dedicated to each other, sharing a hug and being so close that it is difficult to tell them apart. The sculpture stands on a pedestal inscribed with IROMA SUMADEC SON TE AINMO TICNIV ROMA (which, if read backwards, means in Latin: amor vincit omnia et nos cedamus amori – Love conquers all things, so we too shall yield to love). The quotation is taken from Virgil, ranked as one of the greatest Roman poets who also had a lasting influence on western writers such as the late medievalist Dante known for hisDivine Comedy. Virgil wrote three major works, and this quotation is taken from Eclogues (Greek for Selections) published c. 39-38 BC.

Fons van Dommelen (*1964 in the Netherlands), the sculptor, has thus created a figure that combines various traditions and genres which refer to the power of love between two human beings. His colourful execution is reminiscient of graffiti art sculptures and of the energetic patterns of a Niki de Saint Phalle.
