This sculpture is the enlargement of bronze "The little happiness"
Two children, a boy and a girl, play together. The boy catches the girl’s legs. They’re laughing together. Are they happy ? They get an idea of what happiness might be. Laughing together, touching each other, is that happiness ?
This sculpture is a stealth moment of their game.
I could never have done the big one without confronting with the little one.
The differences are only in the details. Interestingly, some decisions made for the small sculpture could not be reproduced in large numbers.
For example the hair: The children represented in the small sculpture have stiff hair. Big hair made "helmet" . So I chose a wavy hair for the haircut of the great characters...
