From the moment I saw the ancient ceramic bathtubs in Crete that served for bathing but also as a funeral sarcophagi, I started to thing about a figure lying in the bathtub. The sculpture of the woman lying in the bathtub was made in 2014. I immediately developed it into another scuplture „Bath in the dark“. The bathtub is full of illusive black water in which a woman figure is bathing. The sculpture makes sense on the water surface. A bathtub floats above the water like a boat flying though the air with the naked lying woman.
