The Kiss is an 1889 marble sculpture by the French sculptor, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). This sculpture has a interesting story to it. it depicts the 13th-century Italian noblewoman immortalized in Dante’s Inferno, who falls in love with her husband, Giovanni Malatesta’s, younger brother Paolo. Having fallen in love while reading the story of Lancelot and Guinevere, the couple are discovered and killed by Francesca’s husband. In the sculpture, the book can be seen in Paolo’s hand. The lover’s lips do not actually touch in the sculpture to suggest that they were interrupted, and met their demise without their lips ever having touched. When critics first saw the sculpture in 1887, they suggested the less specific title Le Baiser (The Kiss).

Yeah nice sculpture Beyond...tassel.gif ?

Hey Ocker, I have never heard of oamaru stone, which is hard, compacted limestone supposedly found only in New Zealand and a favourite with sculptors.

Quote:Its ease of working also appeals to sculptors and examples of Oamaru stone sculpture can be found throughout New Zealand

I wonder why sculptors find it easy to work with if it's hard? Unless it flakes off easily?

Yep, from the video it looks like it flakes off quite easily.

Isn't this mezmerizing? Using magnetic levitation with art/sculpture.
