This is the last of the bronze couples I have, though there’s one more single figure saved to finish up the series.
This couple has a contrasting patina, the woman in soft greens and the man in rich mahogany browns, giving them a rather biracial feel. They’re resting on a soft peach pillow in the classic missionary position. Interestingly, if you flip them over the woman’s pose goes from abandon with her outflung arm, to anger as it’s raised overhead as if to strike.
Like all the couples, the two figures fit together and come apart, adding a tactile dimension to the art. Also, they’re just kinda fun to play with.
