German artist Alexander Polzin presents his sculpture Parthenope (2012, bronze and gold-plated steel, 118 in x 59 in) at LongHouse Reserve where it will be on display for the season. The tree-shaped piece, an homage to the siren called Parthenope, reflects Polzin's influence from mythology and the human condition.  In addition to his work as a sculptor, Polzin also designs major opera productions around the world, a process of exchange between music, literature, and philosophy.
