Sower

1911, BRONZE

A prime example of Polasek’s mastery of the human form, the dramatically modeled figure of the Sower has a classically inspired face and a strong, muscular body. Using the parable of Jesus about the sower – “a sower went forth to sow” – as his inspiration, Polasek’s interpretation shows a man scattering the seed of good throughout the world. Sower won an Honorable Mention in the spring 1913 Paris Salon.
