Loving Embrace Solidified in Marble Sculpture


Sculptor Pascale Archambault chips away at huge blocks of marble and turns them into amazing works of art. Chipping away at the stone, she uncovers the human form, and although a couple's bodies readily appear from the outline, viewers can also feel a sense of soul and spirit emanating from within.

This piece, titled Simbiosis, was created in 2007 for the first Guatemala Festival of Sculpture “Guatemala Immortel.” Though it's not clear what's going on in the scene, what is apparent is that there is an embrace taking place. It's almost as if the two figures are stuck in stone, but within the chaos, they find solace in knowing that they still have each other.
