Can anyone figure out what this is suppose to represent?
I took this picture in Bamberg, Germany and thought it was very odd. It would be nice if someone would tell what it is. Now be nice as you know this is a family site.

Organic sculpture is always open to personal inerpretation. That's what makes it of interest. We will all see different things and have different reactions to the work of art. Organic sculpture can be representational or non-representational or a combination of both.

Interesting piece, thanks for sharing!

It looks like two people hugging.

But Chuck Palm is most likely right...it's organic art and open to personal interpretation.

Interesting though....

It is a man's gorgeous body, with his head cut off, for not asking directions.

Appears to be thighs and calves and buttocks intertwined here and there.

but it could be just a big chunk of wood-looking whatever that some think talent was involved

to me it looks like a naked person (manish due to bulging muscles) but i dont see two people i see one person up against a pole/pilar/column. if it is two people then they both look the same from behind.

Makes me think of a man - who has exposes (emotional/mentally) himself and been worn down by cares and trials of life - his rough edges have been softened

Mine used to be named Stalin (the dictator), but these days it doesn't tell me what to do, it only makes suggestions.
