“Li Bo”

A blue-grey cloud of smoke slowly spreads, swirls, taking on familiar outlines only for a moment. Unlimited imagination of a sage, noticing the smallest details, presents deep philosophical but at the same time bright images, embodying them in the lines of a new verse.

The new bronze sculpture is an author’s artistic vision of Chinese poet Li Bo, also known as “immortal in poetry”. Inspired by the reflections and observations of nature and human life, he compared the verse to the swift flight of the bird: “like a swallow passing over the surface of the waters, here and there, and not to be caught in a snare”.
