52 in 2014 Challenge – #10: Think Too Much

March 1, 2014

A couple of pensive figures from The Art of the Brick exhibit. (the theme police can’t get me for this one!)

I think the above figure is an original design from the artist.  The below figure is Rodin’s The Thinker.  It is a life-sized replica – I hadn’t realized the famous statue is only 70cm high!

From Wikipedia: “Originally named The Poet (French: Le Poète), the Thinker was initially a figure in a large commission, begun in 1880, for a doorway surround called The Gates of Hell. Rodin based this on The Divine Comedy of Dante, and most of the many figures in the work represented the main characters in the epic poem.”

The below statue does not count as one of the many castings of the original…

  1. The Theme Police should be fine with this…given the substantial amount of thinking that had to go into making this thinker.

    • I’m glad you like them. I’d have preferred to remove them myself, but the lighting wasn’t very good.

      • The highlights on the heads made me think of “lightbulb moments” so apropos for a thinker 🙂

  6. I might be biased as I loved legos as a kid anyway, these are awesome!
