Polish-born sculptor Igor Mitoraj greatly admired classical civilization and built a repertoire based on imagery that evokes the Greco-Roman world. However, the artist primarily worked with fragmentary descriptions or figures superimposed with classical imagery. Light of the Moon presents the viewer with an image that in fragmented form and of a diagonal composition seems to reflect lost civilizations and discovered artifacts. The artists worked in Paris, France and Pietrasanta, Italy.
