Auguste Rodin " The Thinker" makes you think about thinking
in class today we explored the perculiar pose of Aguste Rodin's statue "The Thinker".
have you every noticed that the elbow of the arm the rests on the chin is resting the opposite leg...???
As Frank pointed out to the class, that as human beings we don't natural form this position when in a thinking mode....
so why did Agustus Rodin do this to the statue???
becuase the figure is twisted the line of action creates emotion and energy to the overall composition of the statue.
sooooo...... class task today... Max gets to star as the THINKER!!!!
i hope you like, it was difficult to make the arms not fold into the rib cage.... its important that maxs breathes during his intense thinking :D
