Why is this woman’s head coming out of a stone, you ask? Good question! The work is called “Thought” and it is thought, if you will, that Rodin was personifying a single instance of thinking, or an individual thought, by using the lovely model of his student and lover Camille Claudel. What can we say, it’s pretty heady stuff!
“Thought,” modeled 1895 by Auguste Rodin and carved 1900–1 by Camille Raynaud
