Weathered Bronze—The Plowman

Weathered Bronze—The Plowman :: Black and white photography of public art - Artwork © Michel Godts

Contemporary photographic rendition of a bronze statue by Belgian sculptor Léon Mignon: L’Olivier ou La Paix (The Olive Branch or The Peace). Created circa 1894–1898, it represents a plowman and his bull as an allegory for peace. The statue is part of an installation at the Jardin Botanique de Bruxelles in Belgium.

In this photographic artwork the background is removed to focus on the elegance and craftsmanship of the statue, and a high contrast treatment highlights the unique bronze decay pattern. The photograph is recomposed into a white square space to give the artwork a very contemporary look, in contrast to the statue that was created at the end of the 19th century. (September 2015)
