The Friday in Black and White – The Endless Column

  I told you about this sculpture of Brancusi, in a previous post. Today I just want to show you the black and white version.Inaugurated on October 27, 1938, the column has a height of 29.35 meters and is composed of 16 superposed octahedral modules, respectively having at the lower and upper extremities one half of the module. The modules were called “beads” by their author, Brancusi.  It stands in Târgu Jiu  Romania, as a memorial for the young Romanian soldiers who died defending the town against German forces in the First World War.In the 1950s, the Romanian communist government planned to demolish the column, but fortunately this plan was never executed.
