This sculpture is amazing! When the public visits a museum, they repeatedly visit the same artworks to look at them from a different perspective. This fantastic sculpture offers art lovers the ability to “view” their favorite artwork in their own home, from an entirely different perspective, and in a different dimension: 3D! Have you ever wondered what the artwork looked like from behind the painting? Or from the side? To remind you of your museum experience, each figurine comes with a color card of the original painting, information about the painter and a description of the specific figurine reproduced.

In 1880 the French sculptor Auguste Rodin received the commission for the Gates of Hell, a decorative door full of statues for the future Museum of Decorative Arts (Musee des Beaux Arts), to be decorated with low reliefs inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante. Although the Gates of Hell was never completed, some of Rodin’s most famous and memorable pieces were originally done for it including The Thinker, Adam, Eve, and The Kiss. He sculpted them in several sizes and exhibited them extensively. This sculpture is based on a love story reported by Dante in his Divine Comedy and sculptured by Rodin for The Gates of Hell.
Francesca’s father arranged for her to be married to Gianciotto in a political union to end a war between Malatesta and Rimini. Gianciotto’s younger brother, Paolo, was sent to advise Francesca. Upon meeting, they fell in love. Tricked into marriage with Gianciotto, Francesca pursued Paolo until one day they were found in her room. Gianciotto thrust a rapier towards Paolo, but struck both Francesca in her bosom and Paolo. The lovers both and were buried together in a tomb. Their love has frequently been illustrated by artists, as Rodin captures the tenderness of their eternal kiss.

THIS IS THE BEST PRICE YOU WILL FIND ANYWHERE FOR THE SAME PIECE!
