Lot Essay

'I believe the light reflections are very important. The sculptures actually change during the course of the day, in sunshine and shade. The mirroring effects pick up the environment, the spectator. You can be reflected in my spheres, and your image will be distorted. That makes the sculpture very alive, a part of you, of nature in any sort of spot, in a park or in a garden, in the city' (Pomodoro, quoted in S. Hunter, Arnaldo Pomodoro, New York, 1982, p. 104).
