Polish-born sculptor Igor Mitoraj greatly admires classical civilization and has built a repertoire based on imagery that evokes the Greco-Roman world. However, the artist primarily works 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 works in Paris, France and Pietrasanta, Italy.
