"Bronze Statue - Iris, Messenger of the Gods - Auguste Rodin"
This contemporary bronze statue was designed by French object artist Auguste Rodin and bears the name Iris, Messenger of the Gods. The mythological motif, which was first realised in 1891, portrays the abstract bronze nude of a woman. Rodin's expressive interpretation of Iris, the messenger of the gods, effectively blurs the boundaries between expressivity and straightforward eroticism. The slightly abstracted woman spreads her right leg away from her body and holds her right foot firmly in her hand. The revealing pose of the erotic sculpture gives the observer a direct view of the pubic area of the depicted female figurine. With this open, natural depiction of the female sex, Auguste Rodin defined a new image of women in the sculptural arts that effectively combined erotic appeal, natural physiognomy and fertility symbolism. The contemporary bronze sculpture is placed on a discreet black marble base, which forms the backdrop of the motif and gives the erotic nude with a green patina the place in the spotlight it undeniably deserves.
