The Water Jug

For this portrayal of Hellenistic everyday life, in which a woman carries water from the village well, Gerhard chose white chocolate as a reminder of the Greek sculptural arts in white marble. Gerhard departs from the lined, edgy depiction style used for other sculptures to bring out the soft form of the female figure. This carving technique creates an allusion not only to the culture of antiquity, but to the femininity of the object as well. The woman in this portrayal is not only a symbol of life, but serves the development of humanity in her role as a carrier of water.
