Slipping arms around one another, he leans down to kiss her neck. Bodies nestle together, seeking and offering comfort. Anamaria Vieira explores human emotions in polished bronze with a golden patina. "Ambiguity – a characteristic of my work – can be seen in this piece," she says. "Each person can see this encounter in a different way. I try to always leave an option open to the spectator to participate in the work's meaning."

Titled "Aconchego" in Portuguese.

"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.
