Smile is a playful bronze sculpture with a deeper meaning, designed by Marc Caelenberghe. It can be considered an abstract autoportrait.
The void where the eyes should be, represents two opposite thoughts, ideas. On the one hand, it symbolises the negative energy that disappears into it, in essence the things the artist wants to forget. On the other hand, it represents the many impressions, images, thoughts that Caelenberghe’s eyes have seen that made a significant impact on his life. The sculpture is designed in such a way that, no matter from which angle it’s viewed, the eyes seem to follow you.
Our bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax method. Smile is a limited edition bronze sculpture, each piece is numbered and signed.
