Reifenberg

Reifenberg

division 53 - Aside from the letters “MB” on the pedestal and the name “H. Reifenberg,” virtually nothing is known about this stunning sculpture, its sculptor or the deceased. Appearing half-finished this life-size sculpture has always struck me as an oddity of the best sorts: here’s a young woman coming out of (or disappearing into) stone. Is she half in or half out, going neither one way nor the other? If you look closely you’ll notice that she seems to be at a standstill, thinking, with one hand poised behind her left hip and the other under her chin. What is she doing? Whatever she’s up to, I find her most engaging – and continue to wonder just who was this curious “Reifenberg” and what was the story behind the woman in stone?
