Eli Lily Sculpture
DescriptionCan you imagine the agony of a mother holding her diabetic child who is slowly dying in her arms? Before insulin, many parents had to suffer through this hopeless plight. This abstract piece of art was not only intended to catch the eye of people entering the lobby, but represent the human element of the pharmaceutical equation. The sculpture evokes compassion and healing. This welded steel icon coated with metallic paint gives off a radiant glow as the mother cradles her sick child in her arms. Sometimes you don’t need exhibit copy to tell a story and evoke emotions.
