The Embracing Couple-George Segal

I chose The Embracing Couple by George Segal done in plaster in 1975.  I admired this piece because like most of his other work he sculpts ordinary people in their ordinary everyday environment.  The portion of the bodie that he chose to capture worked very well for this piece, the lines and curves of the female body and the placement of the males hand is done beautifully.  I admire the people that had to hold this pose for this detailed piece of work as well.
