“Igor Mitoraj's works combine the surreal with the antiquity of Ancient Greece and Rome. His beautifully crafted sculptures are both thoughtful and monumental. At Canary Wharf are three of his works, representing some of the themes that occupy him: here is the bandaged face of Testa Addormentata. Mitoraj divides his time between his studios in Paris, France and Pietrasanta in Italy.”
