Above you will find a few photographs of works from the North Carolina Museum of Art.

My favorite piece, is the first piece. It is a sculpture by Rodin. It is entitled, “Monumental Head of Pierre de Wissant”. The caption states, “In this larger-than-life portrait, Pierre de Wissant’s introspective agony is amplified to an almost unbearable intensity. The tilt of the head, given greater emphasis through the unusual base of the sculpture, makes this agony even more poignant. The source of Wissant’s anguish was his decision to join five other civic leaders who agreed to sacrifice their own lives to win the freedom of their besieged city of Calais.”
