About the work :

Sophia: "the Birth of Culture"  is a sculpture by Guatemalan artist Walter Peter Brenner.

"Sophie" in Greek means the love of knowledge. It is represented in this work by the figure of a young woman. Wisdom is born through the accumulation of knowledge. It is the achievement of this end that evokes man's awareness of the most important virtues, and transforms a human being into a civilized person. This sculpture is a depiction of that fluid transformation.

The base of the sculpture is a spiralling column of books, which represents knowledge to be the foundation of wisdom.  The column is set in a spiral  to denote the evolutionary process of integrating learning and ordering knowledge into wisdom.   Sophie extends her arm upward conveying both aspiration and movement.  Her ascending pose is a celebration of life, enriched through the transformation of a human being into a civilized person.

The Birth of Culture is a tribute to the pursuit of wisdom and to the benefit of its achievement.

This artwork is signed and numbered.
