Jakov Brdar skulptura 'Obrazi' Sculpture 'Faces' Die
Skulptur 'Gesichter'
| Š nikoli mi ni, na primer, stopilov
zavest, koliko obrazov je na svetu. Množica ljudi je, toda
še dosti več je obrazov, zakaj vsakdo jih ima več. So
ljudlje, ki leta in leta nosijo isti obraz, seveda se ta obrab
in umaže, razpoka v gube, raztegne se kot rokavica, ki jo je
kdo nosil na potovanju. R.M. Rilke. Skulpturo 'Obrazi'
sta mestu podarili Družba Medis in družina Strnad
19.12.2009. | To think, for instance, that I have never been
aware before how many faces there are. There are quan-
tities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for
each person has several. There are people who wear the
same face for years; naturally it wears out, it gets dirty
it splits at the folds, it stretches, like gloves one has
worn on a journey. R.M. Rilke. The sculpture 'Faces' was
donated to the city by the Medis Company and the Strnad
family.
| Daß es mir zum Beispiel niemals zum Bewußtsein
gekommen ist, wieviel Gesichter es giebt. Es giebt eine
Menge Menschen, aber noch viel mehr Gesichter, denn
jeder hat mehrere. Da sind Leute, die tragen ein Gesicht
jahrelang, natürlich nutzt es sich ab, es wird schmutzig,
es bricht in den falten, es weitet sich aus wie Handschuhe,
die man auf der Reise getragen hat. R.M. Rilke. Die Skulptur
'Gesichte' haben an der Stadt Unternehmen Medis und
die Familie Strnad gespendet.
