Bird In Space This piece which stands in the center of a modern art room commands everyones attention It is a half-moon shape on a conical base with a cylindrical bottom Brancusi the sculptor was focused on a bird in flight He focused however not on the physical traits of the bird but rather on its movement This piece seems to be just ready to leave its base and fly into the sky In Bird in Space wings and feathers are removed the bulge of the body is extended and the head and beak are condensed to a distorted oval top Balanced on a slender conical footing the figures upward thrust is unregulated Brancusis captures the essence of flight and the essence of a bird This sculpture is very smooth and aerodynamic the way a birds wings lay against its body It seems to have weight and substantial volume however it is also very powerful and very strong This version of Bird in Space is the first in a series of seven sculptures just like it It was carved from marble and cast in bronze and after it was smoothed and polished I feel that this piece evokes feelings of hope future and power in its endless plight to leave earth
