Constantin Brancusi’s The Newborn

Image result for constantin brancusi the newborn

This sculpture is called The Newborn.  I think this is a replica of the original, which is bronze, but perhaps Mr. Brancusi made some copies.  I do not think he did, but I am far from an expert on art – of any kind!

A friend found a book called The Quiet Eye: A Way of Looking At Pictures by Sylvia Shaw Judson, a Quaker.  I thought it was a sweet picture, and was quite happy when I learned the artist was Romanian by birth.  Two of my followers are Romanian, and I am always happy to learn something new about their country.  My friend knows this, and suggested I put the sculpture on my blog.  She thought the sculpture resembled a “Babe in swaddling clothes,” and I like her interpretation of the sculpture best.  It is an inviting piece of artwork. 

Catch ya later!

About The Mithril Guardian

I like stories.  Whether they’re on film, in song, or in print, I always remember a good story.  They remind me of paintings.  People cannot see them without learning something.  So it’s a good idea to look at a story from as many angles as possible.  I can watch the same movie a million times and still I will learn something that I did not know before.  Thoughts on the Edge of Forever is where I get to focus on what I learned from stories; what was not obvious the first time, the second time, or the umpteenth time. Earlier posts are written in the form of letters, usually to specific characters, to point out what I saw in a particular story or heard in a piece of music. Some of those letters, though, are like letters to the editor. Why did someone write a story this way and not another? Would the story have turned out better if the writer had done something different? These ‘letters to the editor’ will probably never be answered by the writers - the characters certainly will not answer anything - but their contents are still up for debate. After all, unless you ask a question, you will never get an answer. Still, civil ground rules apply. Any foul language or other form of abuse will not be tolerated in Thoughts on the Edge of Forever. I mean, who wants to be around the guest at the dinner party who is being nasty? Practically nobody, since people go to a party to have fun, not to hang around a grouch. So let’s have fun!
