Ceramic sculpture of boy

The little ceramic sculpture of a boy was found by the owner on a flea market. The figure misses its head, one arm and one leg. The owner told that she used to have a special kind of affection towards the esthetics of fragmented and atypical bodies. 100 years ago, when the Bauhaus school was founded, handicaps were perceived very differently in society than today and people with disabilities kept hidden from the public. As today we can celebrate diversity and our differences (physically or of other kinds) – symbolized by the monument created underneath and around the boy’s figure, in a similar way new technology, innovation and progress was highlighted through the Bauhaus designs.
