As a condolence, people will often say, “Sorry for your loss.” The heart of the matter is that our loved one is not lost or misplaced; we know exactly where they are. But, the death of a loved one is not the end-all to what others call “loss”; so many other things are lost when a loved one dies.
Melancholy is a sculpture created by Albert Gyorgy. It portrays the void that death leaves. The sculpture depicts a figure made of copper sitting on a bench slumped over, with a giant hole in the center of it. This hole represents the massive void that we all feel when we lose someone dear to us. Many people have expressed their appreciation for this sculpture for it portraying the exact emotions they feel, but perhaps haven’t been able to put into words.
