This monumental nude seems to float in space. Perched on her right hip, the figure's extended legs and left arm create a strong horizontal, echoed in the plinth beneath her. Resting on an imaginary center of gravity, she teeters between immobility and movement, suspension, and flight.
Aristide Maillol often used the female form to symbolize aspects of nature such as the sea, seasons, and even air.
