Sri Mariamman Temple Gateway - Singapore (detail, bottom photo)

The many statues on the gateway’s steeply pitched roof look in every conceivable direction so that the viewer can’t help but perceive that at least one of them is creepily staring right at her. Several of the figures in the bottom photo come close, but it’s the large figure at lower right that makes solid eye contact with the camera; it almost makes him seem real.

Constantin Brancusi, Construction Documentation of the Endless Column, Targu Jiu, Romania, (1937-1938)

 The Endless Column Ensemble, by famed Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), has been hailed as one of the great works of twentieth-century public art. Commissioned by the National League of Gorj Women to honour the soldiers who had defended the town of Tfrgu Jiu against a German force in 1916, the tripartite ensemble, erected between 1937 and 1938, is composed of the Endless Column, a 30-metre-high column of zinc and brass-clad, cast-iron modules, and two stone monuments: the Gate of the Kiss and Table of Silence. Over the years the elements took their toll on the sculpture, and although the Column s modules had been replated several times since its construction, by the 1990s it was in dire need of conservation. (Which took place with the support of the World Monuments Fund (WMF).

The Endless Column
The Endless Column (often it is called the Column of Infinite) symbolizes the “Infinite Sacrifice” of the Romanian soldiers and it is considered by Sydnei Geist the top point of the modern Art. The Endless Column stacks 17 rhomboidal modules, with a half-unit at the top. The incomplete top unit is thought to be the element that expresses the concept of the infinite. Brâncuși had experimented with this form as early as 1918, with an oak version now found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The modules were made in the central workshop of Petroşani (Atelierele Centrale Petroşani), assembled by Brâncuși’s friend engineer Ştefan Georgescu-Gorjan (1905–1985), and completed on October 27, 1938. All 17 rhomboidal modules accumulate a total height of 29.3 m.
