The Cathedral ~ sculptor Auguste Rodin, c.1908; marble, 64h x 29.5w cm. Musée Rodin, Paris. 'The Cathedral' is a combination of two right hands, belonging to two different figures. Parallels may be drawn between the mysterious inner space that seems to emanate from the composition & Gothic architecture. Emptiness was a factor that Rodin used to allow for & as Rilke pointed out, “the role of air had always been extremely important” for him (Rilke, 1928). #art #mytumblr
