Auguste Rodin Eternal Idol Sculpture Statue Item No. 6010SM Reproduction after Museum Original Throughout Rodin's career, the couple was a constant source of inspiration, enabling him to express all nuances of tenderness, passion and sensuality. Along with The Kiss, Fugit Amour, the Eternal Idol Statue is part of one of the most famous groups of sculpture inspired by the theme of love and romance. Auguste Rodin chose to portray in this group the domination of woman over man who kneels before her in an attitude of adoration, and seems to pay an almost religious homage to an indifferent divinity. It should be noted that the first title for this work was The Host, clearly indicating this notion of devotion. The composition of the group accentuates its psychological aspect; the deliberate vertical line formed by the woman's arms and head contrasts with the diagonal of the man's body and increases the impression of his dependence and respect.
Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
