Maurice Blik – Second Breath
Blik, a holocaust survivor as a child, lived and studied in London where he is now a fellow of the Royal Society of British Sculptors. This expressive figure is one of a series that talks about redemption, about getting a second chance in life. The figure was first created in clay and then cast into polyester resin. It speaks of the human spirit finding freedom.
This sculpture is part of the Permanent Collection of the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
