The sculpture “Unexpected” by the artist Tilo Tscheulin was inspired by a trip to Cambodia in 2010. Temples there are often decorated with huge heads of deities.
One side features a huge head with a gentle smile, while the opposite side comprises of two small heads that are lying on top of each other. The sculpture is mounted at a height of over 2 m on a two-piece base – which makes the heads look down on us. The sculpture is mounted on a bearing and, thus, can easily be turned.
The sculpture “Unexpected” is carved out of sandstone that comes from the surrounding region (Southern Baden).
This sculpture is a free sculpture work, which means that there was no model, master or any other kind of reference point. “I start with a nose and then carve the rest of the sculpture around it,” says artist Tilo Tscheulin.
