Location Description

The dimensions of the untitled sculpture by Julius Schmidt are 72 inches diameter and 48 inches high. Schmidt took enormous care with the materials he used, so that it appears as vital as the skin of a human being. The composition portrays several interlocking pieces. The parts instead fit together subtly and naturally, creating a balance of different, sometimes opposing elements that could stand without artificial help, much as the parts of an individual’s character come together to create a temperament.
