What do you find interesting about the sculpture? 2. Use the mic to record your thoughts about the sculpture. 3. Upload to your journal check With his sculpture, Alexander Milov hopes to bring the message of love. The two adult figures, made from furls of thick wire, may be cast in conflicted poses as they sit with their backs to one another, but the children within represent peace. The artist explains that the outer figures are softened by the figures in the center: the playful children. Open and engaging, the children reach for one another with tenderness. At night, the children illuminate, symbolizing purity and hope during darkness, a beacon to bring together the adults of the festival and the world.
