In Memoriam Constantin Brancusi

“ The people who call my work 'abstract' are imbeciles; what they call 'abstract' is the most realistic, because what is real is not represented by external form but by the idea behind it, the essence of things” Constantin Brancusi (February 19th, 1876 - March, 16th 1957)

 The Endless Column, Constantin Brancusi, Tg. Jiu, Romania

I was very pleased today to find out that today's Google Doodle celebrate the 135rd birthday of Constantin Brancusi. My humble homage to his opera in my previous articles:

I think it's quite abstract. Does that make me an imbecile? :P
