|The Thinker is an often seen element in art, and one of the most recognizable. Originally created by the French sculptor, Auguste Rodin, The Thinker initially pondered his fate atop the large scale relief depicting Dante’s Divine Comedy, now housed at the Musee de Rodin in Paris. Now, this inspirational and timeless pose is now available in bookends, a classic gift to that thoughtful person in your life.
Though a small portion of the much larger piece, the thought-provoking sculpture of The Thinker was immediately popularized by the public. It was turned into a large scale bronze in the early 1900s.
Having answered to other names, such as The Poet, this piece continues to strike to the heart of all who see it. The Thinker provokes reflection for students, professionals and art lovers alike.
