Art is in the eye of the beholder, but in this case you will have to look not once, but many times before you can figure out exactly what Brazilian artist Anamaria Vieira is conveying with this spectacular sculpture in oxidized bronze. Ambiguous and mysterious, the abstract figure on a black granite base looks both like an individual and like a couple at the same time, a metamorphosis between the feminine and masculine sides.

"This is one of my most ambiguous pieces," says Anamaria. "Some people see a hug; others, a being of dual sexuality. I think it is important to leave the interpretation of the piece open to let the spectator participate in the process of creating its meaning."

"a perfect anniversary gift"

I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband at a time when we really needed to reconnect with one another. i spent a long time hunting for a piece of art that would show unity, compassion, passion, and affection, but without being cutesy or involving a heart-shape. This really struck a cord, and seemed to strike my husband as well. It now sits on our coffee table in our high traffic TV room, and i see it every day.

"Blossoming Love"

Elegant, yet powerful; Abstract, yet symmetrical, portraying a soft tenderness not often seen in this type of art. It has already became one of the absolute favorites in my entire art collection. It is now my favorite bronze...period. Anamaria has a very special gift.
