Description/

The sculpture “Herma Hermaphrodyte” was created after a drawing by Man Ray under the same title from 1919. Wavering between figuration and abstraction, this piece's purity of form depicts a hermaphrodite figure. Reminiscent of classical antiquity, the hermaphrodite comes from the representation of the goddess of love, Aphrodite, as a hermès (a bust on a block stone often representing Hermès). The hermaphrodite is also a recurring theme in the art of the avant-garde, especially in surrealism. As exemplified by his photographs, movies and sculptures, erotism holds a special place in Man Ray's work.
