My daily picture – The gate of the Kiss

The gate of the Kiss is a stone sculpture, made by Constantin Brâncuși, part of the triptych of the Monumental Ensemble in Târgu Jiu. The work was placed in its place in October 1937 and was carved in the first part of 1938, being completed on September 20 and inaugurated on October 27, 1938.The gate of the kiss was created around the representation of a hug and a kiss between a woman and a man, which was stylized by Brancusi.On the faces of each column is the symbol of the kiss, two halves of a circle, so characteristic of Brancusi’s work.The gate of the kiss looks like a triumphal arch, symbolizing the triumph of life over death.It is said that if you kiss under the Gate of the Kiss your love will last forever and ever.

I thought it would be a good post for Valentine’s Day!
