This bronze replica captures the timeless beauty of "The Kiss" (1889), a masterpiece created by the renowned French sculptor Auguste Rodin. Originally conceived as part of the reliefs adorning Rodin's monumental bronze portal, "The Gates of Hell," commissioned for a Parisian art museum, this particular sculpture features an embracing couple in an intimate and passionate pose.

Originally titled "Francesca da Rimini," the sculpture portrays the tragic love story of the 13th-century Italian noblewoman Francesca da Rimini, as immortalized in Dante's Inferno (Circle 2, Canto 5). In this narrative, Francesca falls in love with her husband Giovanni Malatesta's younger brother, Paolo, leading to a poignant and doomed romance. Rodin's "The Kiss" encapsulates the emotional intensity and artistic prowess of this narrative, evoking the complexities of love, desire, and tragedy.

Crafted as a bronze replica, this sculpture pays homage to Rodin's original work, allowing admirers to experience the beauty and emotion of "The Kiss" in a tangible form. The piece captures the nuance and intricacy of the sculptor's vision, showcasing the embrace of the couple with a timeless and enduring quality. The replica serves as a testament to Rodin's mastery and contributes to the ongoing legacy of this iconic sculpture.
