Project Description

Neumann Brothers installed this polished bronze sculpture by artist Arnaldo Pomodor at the American Republic Insurance Company headquarters in Des Moines. The nearly 11-foot sculpture has been described as "... a marvelous object, from the world of magic, wizards, whether it is of crystal or bronze or full off water, it reflects everything around it creating such contrasts that it sometimes transformed, becoming invisible, leaving only its interior, tormented and corroded, full of teeth."
