Relationship conflict

The sculpture is of two adults sitting back to back. Perhaps an argument has occurred. Sadness and hurt are apparent. The inner selves are small children. The children are standing facing each other, holding hands through the grating.

Behind anger is hurt and sadness.

The inner child in both just wants to connect and love each other.

Here is a response to the sculpture:

“Age has so many beautiful gifts, but one that I could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we are in conflict with others. The forgiving, open and free spirit of children is OUR TRUE NATURE; and I know I’ll be remembering this next time I’m feeling stubborn.”
