Professor Sigmund Freud is shown in his 60th year when his reputation was at its height. The chair in its very suggestive female form, is based on the one professor had used at his writing desk. A mouse is an attribution to his very first patient, who was very afraid of mice. The Greek figure with the mask and the inscription on its base Know thyself alludes to Freud’s study of Greek mythology and its incorporation into his theories. Dr. Jung, by whom professor felt deeply betrayed, is found at the back. The Ten Commandments represent Freud’s fascination with Moses The Law Giver and with Mosaic Law, the inhibitions and constraints of which were at the roots of his work. The Cigar has no significance, as Freud insists, Sometimes a cigar is just a Cigar! Handmade. Limited Edition. Official Frank Meisler Gallery brand exclusive certificate of authenticity. Metal Alloys with silver/gold plated elements. Marble base.

We inhabit the world with the animal kingdom, they are our cousins with whom we share the pain and pleasure of the planet we live on. Ferocious, pathetic, playful and pretentious, we also share their characteristics. In our animal sculptures we seek to capture this common ground. Like all living things our animals have moving parts, textures and shades that await to be explored.
Large sculptures keep us busy but we allow time for making beauty in miniature - objects of art to wear. When we see our jewelry displayed on the body of its owner as a statement of his choice, we feel the pleasure of a silent bond, a little secret shared with a stranger.
PROFESSIONS & HOBBIES
The professions and hobbies we practice shape our lives and alter us. This is emphasized in the group of figures who pose, perspire, lecture us, swing bats and golf clubs. They humorously draw us into their activities, make us swing their heads and open hidden doors to expose their hidden secrets and surprises.
Our Universal Figures embrace images of painters, artists and great thinkers we admire. In each we look to express what motivates the figure to be what it is.
