I received this as a forward in WhatsApp from a friend. My attempts at finding out the name of the artist to give credit for this post are in vain. If someone can help me with the name, I shall update this post with the details. Thank you,

Not all artists do want “credit” for their output. After all, it might inflate their ego. Though what is wrong with ego (depending how one defines it) is beyond me. Fact is, without wishing to preempt any discussion, without an ego we’d be nothing.
As an aside: Your image brings “holistic” to mind – you know, the interplay of body and mind.
Looking forward to you elaborating …
The ego in this particular work of art is certainly the negative kind that we bandy about like “he is highly egotistic”, “she has an oversized ego”, etc. There are other less hurtful usages like in psychiatry and spirituality about which I would rather not delve here now. If you are serious about it, we can exchange mails about its use in Indian philosophy.
One word interesting. But not all artist are comfortble signing there name.
Coffee is on
Life is so much easier when ego is put aside. This is a fascinating piece of art. Thank you
Entirely my pleasure Kylie. I am glad that you found it fascinating.
I think it reminds us to be more level headed in daily/other life…and no I have no idea on artists name…or even the whereabouts the sculpture if located.

That it does indeed.
I tried google image searching it, but no luck. Interesting sculpture, though.
Same here. I got some spam comments though!
Perhaps it’s a statement about the weight of a mind the body must support having nothing to do with ego.
A very interesting observation Joared. Could well be.
