“Ukrainian sculptor, blacksmith, and designer Alexander Milov has produced a large wire-frame sculpture that features the forms of children that glow when day turns to night.

Milov’s sculpture titled Love depicts a scene of conflict with hope and innocence rising from within.
“It demonstrates a conflict between a man and a woman as well as the outer and inner expression of human nature,” said Milov. “The figures of the protagonists are made in the form of big metal cages, where their inner selves are captivated. Their inner selves are executed in the form of transparent children, who are holding out their hands through the grating. As it’s getting dark (night falls) the children start to shine.

The giant sculpture was produced for Burning Man, 2015…
