Check out this stunning sculpture by Bruno Catalano. It is called Fragments, and it is part of a larger, 10 sculpture project called The Travelers or, more accurately, Les Voyageurs.
Catalano himself is something of a voyager. He was born in Morocco to a Sicilian family. At ten, he and his family moved to France. At twenty, he became a sailor.
This series explores "themes of travel, migration and journeying," as Daily Art magazine puts it. For Catalano, he wanted to explore the idea that "all his travels left him feeling that a part of [him] was gone and will never come back."
