Presentation of an extraordinary masterpiece, "The Thinker" (French: Le Penseur) by Auguste Rodin, a captivating bronze sculpture that resides in the prestigious Rodin Museum in Paris. This iconic work represents a man immersed in deep contemplation, grappling with inner turmoil and engaged in intense inner struggle. Widely considered a symbol of philosophy, it was originally conceived as "The Poet" for a commission from the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, intended to serve as a monumental gateway for the museum's entrance.
Inspired by Dante's renowned literary work, "The Divine Comedy," Rodin conceptualized the gateway, known as "The Gates of Hell." Each statue in the composition represents a key character from the poem.
