Born of the material of the industrial age, Inga Aru’s Muse emerges full of grace and elegance in numerous individual parts from a large-format steel plate and presents itself to the beholder as a three-dimensional abstract female figure in all its perfection. In the spirit of the epoch of its genesis, this modern muse has a standardization and seriality. It is the contemporary appearance of a millennia-old inspirational awakener.
A horse is the most common animal to be displayed in the classic sculpture. On the memorials of the famous military leaders he is put on the same level. This is not only because of his importance in the fight, but also because of his shape, beauty, statue, movement and energy. Put all of this into a still sculpture was for me a great challenge, which brought me closer to my predecessors (Josef Václav Myslbek, Bohumil Kafka and others).
