Burning Man Sculpture Depicts Your Inner Child

We’ve probably all heard it before at some stage – whenever we do something wrong/foolish/silly,  it’s our inner child playing up.

This concept was beautifully encapsulated at the Burning Man festival in Nevada last week. ‘Love,’ by Ukrainian sculptor Alexander Milov, features two wire-frame adults sitting back to back with their inner children reaching out to each other from within. At night, the inner children lit up as well.

According to Alexander, the sculpture “demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children chart to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.”

What does this amazing work mean to you?
