Thought Provoking Burning Man Sculpture Shows Inner Children Trapped Inside Adult Bodies

Everyone can relate.

Every year Nevada's Burning Man festival attracts sculptures and artist from around the world and this year was no exception, although one sculpture in particular stole the show. Created by krainian sculptor Alexander Milov, the piece shows to adults sitting back to back crafted from wire frame whilst two smaller inner children reach out to one another.

The sculpture also took on an even more beautiful form at night as the two children trapped inside lit up. You can take what you want from the sculpture and what is it supposed to represent, but here is what Milov had to say about the piece on the festivals website:

“It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children chart to shine. This shining is a symbol of purity and sincerity that brings people together and gives a chance of making up when the dark time arrives.”
