The Cathedral 10" Reproduction

1 Review
The Cathedral 10

From the Curators:

"The Cathedral is one of Rodin’s most appealing and enigmatic works; in it, a pair of hands graze fingertips, creating a charged space between their palms. On closer examination, one notices that the sculpture consists of two right hands and one begins to speculate on the relationship of the couple. Although the piece is all about touching, we ask visitors to the Rodin Museum not to touch Rodin’s bronze sculpture. This replica, a reduction in resin, is an ideal desktop size and can be handled to the owner’s delight."

- Jennifer Thompson, The Gloria and Jack Drosdick Curator of European Painting & Sculpture & Curator of the John G. Johnson Collection

Add an elegant, artful update to any space with your own masterpiece from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This museum-approved reproduction of Auguste Rodin's The Cathedral will offer a worldly touch to any interior design. Rodin’s belief in the expressive power of every aspect of human anatomy led to some of his most radical experiments, like this sculpture of two right hands. The sculptor published a book on the Gothic cathedrals of France in 1914 and renamed this piece, formerly known as The Arch of Alliance, after the rib vaulting found in Gothic churches.
