Sculptor's thoughts

When you see a fish you don't think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water... If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit.
Constantin Brancusi

Bracusi is one of the sculptors i find amazingly remarkable and original. And glad you like the blue, i thought that the fish might feel more at home in it :)
