Klee’s “Geschwister” in Brass: Sold
This puzzle is based on a drawing by Paul Klee, the early 20th-century Swiss artist and teacher. Klee’s crazy figure seems to consist of a two tightrope walkers that are melded together. You can see four eyes, four legs, and a single heart.
“Geschwister” in German, Klee’s native language, means siblings, so perhaps the figure is a brother/sister tightrope walking act.
The figure itself is made up of a top layer of brass and a bottom layer of walnut. The background is a highly figured piece of walnut whose stress lines form an aura around the brass figure.
